“Fantastic”

Wolves

it begins with an ache
christened in tears

longing begins
a poison
tainting everything
it touches

hunger soon follows
another wolf
to feed
lest it borrow mischief

this absurd reality
(or is it fantasy)
pricks
to watch me bleed

erratic tears obscure
limitless passion
crippling the heart
strengthening the soul


Shawna @ Flipside Records gave us words, and I gave her a poem.
