What I saw
In the woods
Wasn’t good!

In shock
I stared
I froze
I was scared!

No sense
I could make
Of the scene
By the lake.

This feeling
I was getting
Was new to me
Palms were sweating.

Why’s my body
Reacting this way?
It reminds me of
Modelling clay.

Should I tell
What I saw?
Or revisit the memory
A few times more?
