She who knew the way.


"My feet strayed into her circle of light
My eyes asked "Which way is right?"
Her warm glow kept dark at bay
She shrugged as if "Who is to say?"
But, to my course she made a correction
And set me off in the right direction"

  1. My feet strayed into her circle of light
    My eyes asked "Which way is right?"
    Her warm glow kept dark at bay
    She shrugged as if "Who is to say?"
    But, to my course she made a correction
    And set me off in the right direction

  2. I asked which way to go.
    She suggested I follow her glow...

  3. In perfect darkness, with outstretched hands
    My map was useless, I was utterly astray.
    In the distance I saw a lovely shimmer
    she turned her light to show my way.

    She bent her head, and examined my map,
    holding up first north, and then finally south
    She turned to me, glowed brighter still
    Then shoved my map into her mouth.

    Her sharpened teeth tore it to shreds
    Her eyes gleamed though they were coated with Frost
    Her light went out, and a voice hissed in my ear
    My dear now you are truly lost.
