Blood red words

My stinging cheek

A silver knife hides behind you eyes


This is not what I want

A small seedling should grow into a tree

Not a monstrous wolf


Claws scraping the frozen ground

Prepared to pounce yet again

To cut me below the skin


A babbling brook falls from my eyes

As emotions rise in a tidal wave

Ready to drown us


Light, the color of bone

Fills the room

Consuming the image of you


That’s when I know

I’m safe
