The Wolves

The Wolves

A Poem by Lizardo

Oh oh, no no no
The Wolves are coming
The Wolves are coming

Oh please save me before the darkness falls again
Oh please save me because I'm losing, because I'm losing 

I hear their grinning teeth
I hear their Ghostly howl
They're getting closer
They're getting closer

Oh no no no
The wolves are howling
They're getting closer, getting closer
The moon is full, is full 
It can't take no more, it can't no more

One's cries can unleash a fury of tornadoes, 
Suddenly you become the center of the spotlight, because they are throwing you tomatoes 
Maybe not reason that what you wanted it to be,
And at the right where nothing left you have hive full of snakes
Waiting for the time to strike to you down, but they know that it won't be easy
So they take another form, a form that they know will make you fall
So they become your friends-enemies, so they become your stupid fears 
And then you met a tall man, standing in front of you, 
The man said: "I know they all look the same, I know they all think the same, but inside 
They're all a sloppy mess" 
So then the snakes show they're fangs, and you're really not surprise 
You saw this coming but thought it would be fun to play their game

So everyone is the same, they all leave the your nest, leaving you alone, on the verge of Isolation and unanswered questions
So then we sit alone in the park, full of sadness, full of nothing
Trying to cover this is like pouring empty water into an empty cup, but you have to realize that everything can be unlock, as well as your grave, as well as the cell we're their keeping you for aim.

Then night the fell, and the wolves started to howl, here comes the second part of the story when those wolves show their fangs, throwing you down and eating your life, smiling at your side are the snakes who you met in the day and everyone is watching how you fall, but when you thought everything was freaking lost
A woman appeared dressed in tears, a man appear dressed in hope, another man with a crown and another man with robe whiter then the pages of a book
"Come on son we'll be taking you away, you just need to trust us and everything will leave far far away"
"We'll be your house, we'll be your life, so come with us towards the day, just stop digging your grave, just take your hands of your face"

Lizardo.... this poem has a rather interesting story line to it.. It is definitely dark but the way you end it shows that at the end of day, things always get better.. The comparison you have used in this poem is also very strong and delivers a concrete picture of what you want to say. The mistrust and back stabbing you talk about is very clearly delivered through those words and the ending shows that not everyone is like that. And I really liked how you changed the mood from dark to peaceful.

All in all, it was a great poem. :)

A very well written fantasy piece. Wolves and snakes; empty water and empty cups; tall men and women dressed in tears and 4 entities to escort you to your place in heaven/hell. Very imaginative and cleverly presented, well done! take care...dan

"So they take another form, a form that they know will make you fall
So they become your friends-enemies, so they become your stupid fears..." And people wonder why i have trust issues? smh...
i like this piece and the picture it paints in the mind. The wolf metaphor is very close to how some people are in real life; dangerous and deceiving. Nice work

Sounds like a very solitary existence. Valentine

well i can feel a little distrust of people,but that might be a good thing today

Posted 8 Years Ago now everyone is snakes and wolves to you.
paranoia, or looking down everyone else...or both?
that's the first questions that came after reading.
another thing's dark, and i like that. though the hopeful ending messes everything up.
that's only my opinion
