Love me like a wolf
Cheetahs are out there
Wolves are monogamous creatures, they inspired to write this piece about the remarkable fealty of the wild dogs.
Every mistake I've made
It leaves a scar that burns everyday
I I
i dread the day you learn
for the first time that
you can't just love all
the darkness in me away

and no matter how much
you care i will still toss
and turn at night and scars
might still appear on my skin

i dread the day you realize
that you can't cure me
and sometimes all you can do
is stand next to me and
hold my hand through fog
pouring out of my ears so black
and thick we can't even see
each other's faces

i dread the days i can't
get out of bed
the days you want to
take me out and all
i can manage is a prettified
shell of myself

i dread the day you learn
that sometimes no matter
how hard i try i still can't
pull myself together

the day you learn that
there isn't an answer
you can give that will
save me from my fears

you aren't the first person
who has tried to love the
darkness inside away
my family and friends
have given it their all
but someday you too will learn
that if love could
cure mental illness
the world would be
a much better place

Now you silent
and cold like a corpse
You've vanished into the dark
like a thief in the night
Breaking each
and every promise
Robbing me
of my sleep at night
I am invisible when I ascend
But visible when I descend

I sustain every living thing,
I am what spawned forth
The firmament


I run but I have no legs
And I clap but I have no hands

What Am I?

How lost was I
till you came and found me
And how lone was I
till you came for me

I destroy everything I touch
And I ask for too much
I am afraid to admit what we are
For it might change who we are

Everything happened so fast
And I wish I could go back to the past
To that fest moment I laid my eyes on you
Then I would set you free
Because you deserve more than I can give
I can steal you
And take you far beyond pain and misery...

I will bring you the gold in the sun
And the silver in the moon
Cause you flawless like a rose in full bloom
Inspired by a *****
