Wolves

Wolves

A Story by Kathryn Smith

I want to feel the way I did that summer night


Drunk on a feeling alone with the stars in the sky


I've been running through the jungle


I've been crying with the wolves


To get to you


To be alone with you


I've been down the darkest alleys


Saw the dark side of the moon



I've looked for love in every stranger


Took too much to ease the anger



All for you






Behind closed doors


We all have our secrets


Our memories


Our dreams


And if you dare to look closer


Some of what drives us


To be who we are


To want what we want


Stems from darkness



And some of our scars that make us strongest


Are from injuries that go beyond skin deep


These injuries touch our hearts


Our souls


Our very beings




I can feel eyes on me


Eyes of lust


Eyes of passion


Eyes of men


With the intensions of wolves



And in order to appreciate love


To find a good true love


We must be clawed upon


We must fall prey to cunningness


To the scars of darkness


To the dreams that crack and quiver



And when we step out of that darkness


And meet our match


The  journey with the wolves


Is what made our new hearts


Ready to love


Hatch

This is such a compelling read for me, one I feel quite very much atm. You're right, I think the darkness within us introduces us to a whole new 'us'...
Though I'm quite undecided on your last lines.. I feel the journey with the wolves shuts down the door of our hearts. It takes a long time to really let someone else in...
I loved this song btw, would be listening to it the next couple of days ;) so thank you for this, Kat 😊💜

*Welcome to "Pure Rhymes" Thanks for joining, great to have you...!*

The first verse got me... Then i reflected as it went down... Am I ready to emerge an adult "wolf"... Ready to run with the best of them... I hope so...

Great start to this - very lyrical Kat.
I got a image of tumbleweed who grows actual roots and becomes a strong tree in spite or thanks to the trials of Life.
Excellent writing my friend.

I love the contrasting imagery of the first part of the piece. Dark, claustrophobic, angry, hunted... contrasting with warm, summer, bright stars, and hope at the end of the journey. Nicely written Kat :)

Two good interconnected pieces Kathryn. The second is full of brittle emotion and anger and confusion. Very effective metaphor. Hey Don't neglect some reviews dear lady, else the wolves will be unleashed!
