Wolf girl
her movement so strange
like she's drowning from
the voices in her head
a psychosis, senses streaking
like words flooded on the
page of her one of her books
thrumming, humming bodies
before her eyes that she
is caught like a disease
and the sedition of her
mind
like a forest in flames
echoes like the last time

she


held



his




hands
and

looked inside him
those worn pieces of concrete
& soot
plummet & plunge

leaving only the boy.
Only


the


boy
who refused to cry wolf

against her


The author's comments:
I don't generally enjoy writing poems about self, as this one so sadly is, but I strive for honesty and this one is drowning in it.
