hidden passages

by Charlotte B., 14

The restless wood can be found just paces away,
behind hidden passages.
Doors disguised as bound ink and parchment,
and script that flows like pitch-black rivers.
One step,
one stride,
and the world fades into the background,
a mere buzz in comparison to a symphony that promises irresistible adventures.
Corpses are found behind shut curtains,
thickets beyond trapdoors,
and forests past open windows.
They lie there,
waiting patiently for you to arrive.
