Some Nights, The Wolf Inside Of Me

wolf

“Some nights, the wolf inside of me shrinks to nothing, she bares her teeth and runs away. The dragon in my chest rejects me, she’s so tired of being slain. There are nights when the lioness cowers, says she can’t fight it another day….”
“What about the phoenix?”
“She sits with me in the darkness. She whispers we’ll rise. Just you wait.”

Forgive Me

Forgive Me

Forgive me if I stumble and fall for I know not how to love too well I am clumsy and my words do not form as I wish so let me kiss you instead and let my lips paint for you all the pictures that my clumsy heart cannot.

Unstoppable They Called Her

Unstoppable They Called Her

UNSTOPPABLE

Unstoppable they called her but I saw her stop I saw her stop many many times.

Sometimes I thought she had stopped for good but no she always found a way to resurrect. To rise again.

Not the same never the same. Each time a little more determined and a little less vulnerable.

Unstoppable they said but I think it was in the stopping that she found her power.

Sometimes The Wolf Cries Girl

Sometimes The Wolf Cries Girl

Sometimes the wolf cries girl

Sometimes the hero stumbles,and falls right off of the page.Sometimes the princess rolls her eyes,and says “I don’t want to be saved.”Sometimes the dragon needs rescuingand the villain aches to be helped.Sometimes, in the darkness,the lost boy finds himself.Sometimes the prince is cunning,and not at all what he seemed.Sometimes the witch’s kindness,shows it’s she who deserves to be queen.Sometimes we shouldn’t define peopleby someone else’s point of view -just because it’s what we’ve been told, doesn’t make it true.
