In An Instant
Wolf Feb 26
Before I even knew what was happening
Blood had already begun to seep out
A sudden flash of pain
Out of sheer loathing
For my own
Stupidity

Now
I am left with
A crowd of small wounds
Perhaps those around me will stay silent
If they question, I will cloak myself in lies once more

Hungry And Alone
Wolf Feb 21
If I ate myself
Would I still remain the same
Or just disappear?
Feb 20 · 174
Bad Mood
Wolf Feb 20
"Is she doing okay?"
A friend looked down at me
I pretended not to hear, just go away
And leave me be

"Yeah, she's probably fine."
That's how he replied
My mind refuses to align
Why couldn't you have tried?
Even if I don't seem to like it sometimes, it's always nice to ask to show that you care.

Blame
Wolf Feb 19
I've been knocked to the ground
And blamed for falling

Hear A Poem
Wolf Feb 15
More than a poem
If it can speak to your soul
Let yourself listen
Just a simple phrase
Could possibly change your life
With a soft whisper
Feb 15 · 95
I'll Laugh
Wolf Feb 15
If I can't hear you
I'll laugh
Since I'm afraid to ask for clarity

If you offend me
I'll laugh
It's just a joke of course...

If you insult me
I'll laugh
My self-confidence cannot be lowered!

If I'm humiliated
I'll laugh
Punishment and anguish will come soon

If you notice the cuts
I'll laugh
"It was just my dog, LOL."

If I'm ready to die
I'll laugh
I don't want you to know

If I cause harm
I'll laugh
It'll make me sound innocent :)

If you see my fear
I'll laugh
To simply strengthen the illusion

I Hate It
Wolf Feb 15
How
Can
  I
   Have
    So
     Much
      Hatred
       For
        Someone
         That
          I
           Wish
            They
             Never
              Existed?
But I can't do anything about it now.

To The Broken Hearted
Wolf Feb 14
Keep your head up high
Even if your heart's down low
When the future rolls around
You'll be laughing about it, I know

The courage that you had
To let your feelings show
Keep it with you, always
It'll surely help you grow

Heartbreak hurts in many ways
You might think it's your time to go
But surround yourself with joyful things
And soon you'll start to glow

The ground is still beneath you
Even when the tears do flow
It may seem like it's over now
But you'll get through it, though
For Poolza, and anyone else who is suffering from heartbreak. Don't give up hope, remember to love and accept yourself.
Feb 12 · 71
Confessing
Wolf Feb 12
Is it worth the risk
To confess hidden feelings?
Chance for grief or joy
It could go so wrong, or so right. No matter the outcome, believe in yourself. I've been through it twice and I'm still here.
Feb 12 · 45
I Can't Focus
Wolf Feb 12
Light whizzes past my eyes
Colliding with the next
Bright hues of every colour
Swirling, hypnotizing, enchanting
All the lies, they will not save me
Fantasies left to crumble

Crisp sheets lay in front of me
Their words scramble together in unending strands
A voice shreds my ears
Scraping lines tie me down

I can't focus
I can't hear you
I'm sorry

My chest is pierced, to no reply
Shrill laughter licks up the blood
I'll surely ignore my punishment
And give myself what I deserve

At my only sanctuary
Numbers and letters invade
Just to eat up my time to heal
My insides are twisted up and empty
Yet I smile around those who see

I am held back by myself
Chains ripping at my wrists
Pressed against a wall of shattered glass
I've misplaced the letters H-E-L-P
They've been scattered on the floor

I can't focus
I can't hear you
I'm sorry

Old Habits
Wolf Feb 12
Plunging into
Old habits
Again
Why

Why am I here
Repeating
This once
More

I will never
Escape my
Own heart
Now

I was sober
So tired of
The word
Love

Now I am drunk
Still too young
Falling
Down
Feb 10 · 65
The Train
Wolf Feb 10
Seated on a bench
Carved with words
Waiting for the train
To take me away

Somewhere far from
This empty town
The streets are too quiet
Only ghosts remain now

A fireplace flickers
Somewhere down the road
Piercing the night
And the whispering breeze

Cackling relatives
Curious children
The smoke curls
As the sounds fade

Beneath my feet
A deep rumble
The train screeches
To a halt beside me

Mist kisses my cheeks
Before I step into the light
The laughter stings
My scarlet ears

I take a seat
And press against the glass
Breath painting shapes
On the foggy window

I've left the town behind
My home nowhere in sight
I could be going anywhere
Yet I'm headed nowhere
Wolf Feb 10
On my own
Decisions have failed me
Love now a distant
Tangled lie

I walk among others
Their hearts turning over
My mouth repeats
What my eyes have seen

At last, love blossoms
For two friends close to me
As fate strikes yet again
I observe in utter joy

But I hold my own secret
For my love has returned
Back to habits long faded
Mended with pleasure

I'll be their wings
Into a new dawn
A mere shadow on the wall
But not quite so lonesome
Feb 1 · 57
Mother Earth
Wolf Feb 1
Mother Earth
Twirls 'round, keeping a balance
Of a calm, dark night
And a luminous day

Mother Earth
Not the fairest maiden around yet
She provides
For ev'ry one of her kin

Mother Earth
Her arms are open to those who fall
For when it's time
We'll return to her

Mother Earth
She's growing tired of our antics
Suffering day by day
On our behalf

Mother Earth
Waving the smoke away from her eyes
The heat now grows
Unbearable

Mother Earth
What have we done to deserve you?
Surely we'll
Be your demise...
This plays like a song in my head, so I hope it doesn't sound too weird.

Childhood
Wolf Feb 1
A time of innocent wonder
The world flowed around me
Bright colours hypnotizing
To my little blue eyes

Before the searing pain
Or the sharpened tongues
When the people I met
Became my friends

How I regret complaining
Of the simple addition
When time was merciful to me
And opinions meant nothing

Drama spread like fire
Over toys, boys, and friends
Only to be forgotten
The following day

Life of innocence
Seemed never-ending
Oblivious and naive
I wish I could stay
Jan 28 · 111
My Nightmare Counter
Wolf Jan 28
Tick, Tick
The clock looms over me
Click, Click
Go the gears
Sick, sick
In the head
I see things that others can't. There is a large black clock constantly hovering over my head, reminding me of... something, A feeling of what I can only describe as dread.
Jan 27 · 340
Apologizing
Wolf Jan 27
True apologies
Form in the heart
A warm hug
A thought-out letter
Or a string of humble words

To my family
To my friends
To a stranger
To God
To the earth

Then why can't I
Say sorry
To myself?
Simply because
I won't be forgiven
Jan 27 · 50
Human
Wolf Jan 27
Flesh unfolds
Of tinted hues
Reveals no difference
Of heart, in nature

Acts of folly
Acts of grace
What does it matter
When consumed by darkness?

Tyrants, we are
Too clever for ourselves
Yet again
We deface our own

Beasts weep before us
The ground grows bare
Alas, we build skyward
Destined to fall, the cycle of life

Clockwork minds stand in rows
Held captive by flashing lights
"I am better than you!"
We shriek in pure delight

Our pride ineffable
Forever climbing further
Scoffs of mockery slaughter innocence
Drawing blood with hearty laughter

Are we not simply ******?
Watch us drown in pleasure
And let our corpses rot!
Just for human desires

So selfish are we
Craving earthly possessions
They dig our graves for us
As we suffocate in false joy

Who are we?
What are we?
Why are we?
Human...

Dear Friends
Wolf Jan 25
Hir eyes
Are full of emptiness and sorrow
His eyes
Want to be someone, someday
Her eyes
Glisten with beauty, yet she lashes out
His eyes
Keep all of it locked away
Her eyes
Soft and gentle, but under strict laws
His eyes
Hurt and broken again, still moving forward
My eyes
Trapped in fear only longing for joy

We all stand together
Never fading away
For my closest friends, I know you all too well.

My Dog Scratched Me
Wolf Jan 25
I looked them in the eyes
And lied
"My dog scratched me, that's all."
Jan 24 · 132
Repeated Wounds
Wolf Jan 24
Paper thin slits
On my pale skin
Blood glistening
A deep crimson

Sets the shame free
Cools the anger
But I still hate
This part of me

Blades press deeper
For each mistake
The searing pain
I cannot hide

This punishment
I deserve it
So my mind says
Repeatedly
Jan 23 · 69
Adrift
Wolf Jan 23
I am
Adrift
On a
Wide sea

I'll be
Drowning
In a
Short time

A Friend To Mend
Wolf Jan 23
Love can heal
A broken heart
But love takes many forms
A touch of another
The embrace of a mother
Hold close those you cherish
To a dear friend
A few simple words
Could truly mean the world
To my friend Alli, I'll always have your back. I'll be here for you when boys act ******, and when your "friends" treat you like ****.

Close Memories
Wolf Jan 23
Told to hold
My memories close
How many will I forget?

Still, I will
Set them on my shelf
Already some forgotten
Wolf Jan 19
Rumors prevailing, Forgotten past
Oh a wish in a little clearing in the woods, A nickel of a hope
The signs were obvious, yet the song keep on straining
But with all due time the four elements shattered
Broken Harmony, Four elements scattered across the Earth
Fire, ice, lightning and water.
Two tried to forget, Another eased the sorrow
And one would see it that as harmony broken, nothing could repair the long forgotten oath
Fire and Ice's broken bond
Shattered the earth as neither could forget
Lightning had foretold all
Warnings forgotten, as time does to all
Yet water never failed to forget
Always wary, yet never showing
Harmony in balance, bonds yet strengthened
All in one, shattered bit by bit
Alas, water’s song had failed
Fire enraged, Ice sorrow
Lightning bitter
Water would assure that guilt of time would never cease.
This poem was not written by me. I requested permission of a close friend to post this for all to see, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

What The Future Holds
Wolf Jan 19
The future promises
...
Nothing, really

Just a shrowd of dreams
That will never happen
We live in false hope, expecting tomorrow will go our way. But there is no guarantee tomorrow will even happen.
Wolf Jan 19
The screams have been roaring
Thriving, locked in my head
Had I done nothing
There they would stay

But a new day has risen
Change I stray from, change I seek
Alas, the scars burn
Screams merely dulled to whispers

I am able to turn my ears away
Yet they linger in my heart
So cold, an aching snowfall
On my very soul

"You still love him, desperate as always"
"Difficult, unstable, unworthy *****"
"You are too afraid to try any more"
Now be silent and perish already"

The snow dissolves to nothing
In the midst of my true flame
The screams silence themselves
For I no longer listen to deafening lies

Despite my efforts, forgetting is futile
I am still persisted by whispers to this day
I cast them away as illusions
Bringing focus to the light I hold
Jan 18 · 70
Taste Of Life
Wolf Jan 18
Life is a gift
Of random splendour

Pain starting swift
Then the next so tender

Or so they say
Give a reason to me

Why my sweets stay
As stagnant as can be
Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get.
Jan 15 · 136
Meaning
Wolf Jan 15
I wish to say
"I didn't mean it"
But this time
I truly did

Betrayal
Wolf Jan 14
The thought that you
Would harm me so
Had never crossed my mind
For I was utterly obsessed

Secrets
Smiles
Safety
Revolved around you
Oh how I craved it all

But still, I fell
And you caught me
With love growing less
My pain growing worse

Soon my eyes were opened
Blind no longer
To my actions
So I waited for your return

The words which followed
I did not fear
You loved me, you loved me
Right?

Leaving for uncertainty
All reasons stayed valid to me
My hope still stood
Just for you

But there was a single sentence
Not another girl
Not turmoil between parents
Not collapsing grades

You simply wanted to leave
"Difficult and unstable," you spat at me
My dearest friend
Whom I fell in love with

He
left
me
suffering

My insides churned
Words flew onto the screen
I cursed him
Wept until breath refused to flow

The last words I received
From my future, my place of joy
****
You
I don't care.

Lost Words
Wolf Jan 13
All
Lost words
Find their way
In a poem

Brandish a pen
Catch your thoughts
And guide
Them
Jan 12 · 64
Early Morning Meadow
Wolf Jan 12
Close your eyes
Take a step

Into the soft grass

Velvet blades in rows
Start tickling your feet

Look to the heavens

The sky a deep navy
Like ocean blue

Stars flicker and giggle

For along the horizon
Lie tips of sleeping dawn

Your feet begin to wander

The wind whispers a breeze
Poking cooly at your cheeks

Fireflies flutter peacefully around you

A heavy veil of fog
Descends upon your figure

Rest soundly until morn
Jan 11 · 114
Morbid Curiosity
Wolf Jan 11
Humans
Are quite certainly
A curious species
Build, destroy, rebuild

But our
Curiosity
Could easily lead to
The death of the world

Rulebreaker
Wolf Jan 10
Be like the English language
Make your own rules, then break them
Things can be tough to get through, though.

Time
Wolf Jan 9
A day can drag on for a year
While a year can fly by in a day
Time itself
Is quite the anomaly
Jan 9 · 139
Back To The World
Wolf Jan 9
Back to the world
I still refuse to awaken in

Back to the world
That reminds me of a corpse

Back to the world
Which stole my warmth and praise

Back to the world
Where my safeties cease to exist

Back to the world
That hurts me so

Back to the world
And those burning eyes
Hello world, I'm back.
Jan 3 · 149
Sky Tears
Wolf Jan 3
Tears shed by my eyes
Capture sorrow and hopelessness
In a wailing sob

Tears shed by the sky
Pour from the heavens to nourish
All who live below

Why can't I
Cry like the sky?

Leaving not a salty burn
But the scent of petrichor
Dec 2018 · 627
A Safe Place
Wolf Dec 2018
Please let me stay
Right here
Where the faces
Are not shadows
But instead
Filled with light

Leave me be
To observe a memory
Or indulge in a thought
So my joy
Will forever
Thrive within

The pain has vanished
The fear finally fled
So why must it be
Sent back to me?

The Wandering Soul
Wolf Dec 2018
A wanderer approaches you
His eyes are those who've seen the world
For this man, what would you do?
Turn your cheek and fear his act
Or greet him, ease what he's been through
He'd smile back, old and worn
Like painted art that's lost its hue
"Release hearts still confined, forget not your own."
His advice a mountain, solid and true
Every day you'd meet those eyes, growing ever-so softer
The wandering soul has advice for you
Dec 2018 · 102
Sound words
Wolf Dec 2018
How is it
That mere words
Create sounds
In our heads?
Zip
Thud
Plop
Gush
Clunk
Scrape
Warble
Twang
If you focus
Lend your ears
You can listen
To silent words
That truly resound
All around you
Snap crackle pop, this poem looks like a guitar.

Haiku For The Struggle

Little Inferno
Wolf Dec 2018
Gather 'round the smouldering flames
Now those who wander lay frigid
Toss all your cares to the fire
The world is getting colder...

Incomplete Story
Wolf Dec 2018
To live
Is crafting a prized novel
Memories resting on every page

To end a life
Is deeming it complete
Before the reader is satisfied

A book lacking a proper end
You could call it a book
But it is not a story
I almost finished my book in chapter 13. Refuse to take a life, even if it is your own.
Dec 2018 · 196
Dive Of The Past
Wolf Dec 2018
I donned a suit of warmth
And dove into my memories
They swirled around my body
Teasing scars I left behind
But what once scraped my soul, past love
Won't hurt the same again
Taken softer, just a heartbeat
Like a storybook for me

A laugh
A grin
A hand
A kiss
Something to treasure, not to fear
For learning
For growing
Even for showing
In my heart, all held dear

I smiled as they carried me away
Letting them flourish, it gave me breath
For I knew a reader stood close by
In case I ever dove too deep
Dec 2018 · 171
Leap Of Faith
Wolf Dec 2018
I have climbed the cliff
To gain a chance for praise
Alas, the times I know too well
Are ones where I have fallen
The air itself had parted beneath me
Now to the cold, unwelcoming ground
My body is left to lay

But something sparked in my writhing mind
"Take the leap once more"
Brushing off the fear and dust
My ascent began anew

Before a word was uttered
The ground was far beneath my feet
Left behind with those worthless doubts
Today, I took flight

And when the wind was no longer
Beneath my frail, young wings
Smiling faces met my eyes
Warmed my heart
And caught me
Take a leap of faith, speak out and change the world. The chance to fly in joy is worth the risk of failure, for failure does not last forever. Today I talked to people, shared my thoughts, and for once I was not humiliated for it. I wish it was always this way.
Dec 2018 · 618
Stranger
Wolf Dec 2018
A lost stranger
Waved at me today
My aching heart
Hurt a little less
The corners of my lips
Raised a little more
Face every trial
Knowing that you made my day
Brighten a little more
To Lost, be strong through anything that you face.
Dec 2018 · 89
Firsthand Heartbreak
Wolf Dec 2018
I get what heartbreak means now
My chest is throbbing
Waiting to see if he still loves me is agonizing, even if I'm still pretty young. I don't want to grow up anymore.
Dec 2018 · 59
My Powers (I Can)
Wolf Dec 2018
The mentally sick are powerless
They said
But I see through those lies
My powers are only for me
I can find loneliness
While I'm drowning in a crowd
I can feel crushing misery
During times of great joy
I can constantly slice my paper skin
Without anyone batting an eye
I can fight my internal battles alone
Barely surviving myself
Hiding
Suffering
Still trying, though
Aren't my powers wonderful?
Dec 2018 · 934
Laughter
Wolf Dec 2018
Laughter is like makeup
Proper use
Enables youth and joy
But just as simply
Great amounts
Cover sights for no one's eyes
Concealing a blemish
Disguising deep despair
Fake fools shall be found out
As I have already failed
Makeup run dry
Laughter deemed empty
