I wish I could live
on nothing but air;
killing the hunger
to consume every
improvised lie.

     (Maybe all along,
                I've been the wolf in
                           sheep's clothing.)

Why is it that when
I exercise my own
feeble infallibility,
these fangs just
continue to hone
on fraudulence?

     (It's too painful
                  to continue howling
                        at this contorted reflection.)

Yet every time
I take an ax to
exterminate the
counterfeit beast,
its claws just leave
another patch of
scars on the inside
of my skin to remind
me just what I am.
       (The girl who cried wolf
                      will never be able to
                                butcher her own heart.)
Taking a momentary break from my hiatus because I need to write something before I think about it too much.

I don't really think I need to explain what this is really about since it's fairly obvious if you look into it hard enough, but I will say it's circulating around two really big problems of mine.

Don't worry; that damn wolf is too strong to let me to put her down just yet.

She can smell fear.

Trust me; it keeps getting mine as well.

Nope. The creator is in my signature. I have no idea how to make icons.
