Oh, you wicked Wolf.
Hiding, pretending not to watch. I feel your eyes upon me. I sense you in each of my steps.
Leave me be, you big, bad dog. Let me walk in peace.
Oh, you silly Wolf.
I hear your heavy pant. It steals my oxygen with every single breath.
Let me go, my monster. Let me walk in peace.
Oh, you sad, lost Wolf.
Keening in the darkness. Licking your stinging wounds. Hoping to end this long, failed test.
Stay gone, you sweet, broken thing. Let me walk in peace.
Oh, you old Great Wolf.
Stranded, alone in this wilderness. Aching for the comfort that love’s kept.
Follow from the distance, if you must. But, let me walk in peace.
Oh, you tortured Wolf.
Chained to the edge of the wood. Trapped, forever, in the story you told best.
I must walk in the light now, my friend. Please… Let me walk in peace.
