A 'Girl' And Now

Lost Girl and Now in the woods,
and that which you hug is the tree.
You can not stretch them, Full around it,
while upward and down ward amazed.
And your feet become even more entangled
under it's skirt,
as it's roots are at play with your lovely toes.

    Sleepy Hollow springs to mind here iip! The final lines imagery is a bit scarey, but comforting too.

    Smiling at you
