what just happened ... will never happen again .
your hands start to tremble; the sink is cold .
you tell yourself you are strong; you are bold .
don't look in the mirror and stare .
this isn't right ... this isn't fair .
don't think about it too much, or you'll go insane .
tears and blood make their way down the drain .
what just happened ... to me ?
why do you feel so gross and dirty ?
feeling so worthless and wasted .
so unloved , abandoned, and tasted .
having given them everything, every part .
why did they turn, and break your heart ?
shattering every piece, leave you broken .

The will of the wolf pack.
Sharp eyes watch your every step,
Ears move to pick up each breath.
Outsiders are enemies,
And enemies are just another kill.
We move as one,
A deadly shadow.
Soundless and invisible.
We hunt without gaining attention.
But we aren't just mindless murder machines.
We are family.
We are safety.
We are hope.
But we are dangerous.
The alpha calls the shots,
The pack moves to obey.
Outsiders are not accepted.
You are part of the pack,
Or you are prey.
You want to be part of the pack.
To question the pack,
Puts anyone in dangerous territory.

His old practice bow an arrows.
My frame could barely hold my elation at such a perfect gift.
All summer I bruised my arm,
The bow strings snap loosing its bite.
And the better i got,
The harder i tried.
And the harder i tried,
The more about myself I learned.
I've rarely felt so at home,
Than with a bow in hand.
Knowing the arrow will meet it's mark,
And already nocking the
#65 BoundariesI live inside a space I shudder to let others occupy.#65 Boundaries in Free Verse More Like This
I shrink away from touches,
And people always wonder.
I live in a world with boundaries no one else sees.
A touch on my hand will make me sick to my stomach.
A hug might almost hurt.
A brush against my arm will put me into shudders.
And sometimes none of it matters.
But then someone gets to close.
Eyes linger to long,
A touch that wasn't needed,
A smile a bit to sweet.
People don't know my boundaries.
I live in a world with walls of steel,
With strings not to be touched,
Lest I run and hide.
I live in isolation,
For fear of contact.
I have been this way forever.

Like they all want to be,
Just like me?
Why when my life,
Has been made a living Hell,
For knowing who I am.
It takes a thick skin to be me.
