I Couldn’t Help but Stop and Stay

I wandered through a forest deep,
Where secrets whispered in the trees,
And as I walked, the shadows crept,
And danced with every gentle breeze.

The rustling leaves sang a song,
Of ages long since passed away,
And though I knew I didn't belong,
I couldn't help but stop and stay.

The forest spoke in tongues unknown,
But I could feel its ancient voice,
And though my heart was chilled to bone,
I knew I had no other choice.

So I surrendered to the night,
And let the forest take me whole,
And as I faded into sight,
I felt a peace within my soul.

For in that forest, I was free,
To be myself and nothing more,
And though I longed to never leave,
I knew I had to close the door.
