The Wolf

He’s a scary man,
They say he’s a creep.
Only comes outside
When it’s time to eat.

He stalks the streets at night
And is all alone by day.
Now he’s worked up an appetite
And is looking for his prey.

And a guy walking by,
Who pretends to look away,
Tries to put up a fight
But can’t see straight.

While the man claws his way in
Through to the flesh in his skin,
He takes that sword
To annihilate him
‘Til there’s nothing left
But pink and sirens.

Then he’ll go back home to his Marlboro Slims,
While he washes the pink
Off his blood-stained limbs.
And he’ll think about what he did
But he doesn’t give a damn.

Watches the streaks
Circle the drain.
A life that perhaps was
Taken in vain.

All alone,
Another name;
A bag of bones
That can’t be blamed
For the screams and moans
From the howling unknown
That is the man who lives all alone.

Full now
As he lies down,
Shedding all of his fur.
As the sun comes up once more
If it was all a dream now he just isn’t sure.

He is always drawn to the simplicity and uniqueness that life has to offer. He doesn’t identify with labels or socially constructed ideas about how the world should be. He believes that the world is your oyster, and that we all project our own destinies with the thoughts we choose to harbour about the universe. He is an idealistic, spiritualistic hippie who is just trying to find his place in this world, crafting each word to leave his mark, and promote love and equality among all people.
