salem (part iii)

peeking over the crest of the hill

from behind a knotted stump

he saw the tree

and his eyes darted around

scanning for movement.

aside from his breathing it was quiet

as he waited.

it seemed as if the sky

was afraid to be seen

as a murmur mounted

in the darkening clouds

when the sound reached his ears

he knew

that it was his fault as well

and that it wouldnt be long now.
