That drove him to lose his mind
when a walk in the wood could remind
him of a moment with her
rather than loneliness up there.
Deep in the forest he could breathe
a beautiful sunrise he might grieve
though the sigh he would feel
gave his heart such silent reveal.
While now his world severely changed
a universal appeal does rearrange,
is one of meant clarity.
Glance out into this new landscape
a room with slat curtains cannot escape
this reality of now his village
sans human interaction like some pillage.
Look outside toward a forest of city wine
would she might sweet silence entwine.
