No one ever sees

Behind these blue-green contacts,
My eyes are a molten gold,
And right above the skin you see,
The shadow of a phantom pelt hovers.
Extending out of my spine,
An invisible tail wags.
But you don’t notice,
You don’t see,
No one ever sees.

I have to hide everyday,
Whenever humans come too close,
I hide myself, walk upright,
Flatfoot, with loud, clumsy steps.
You think it’s normal.
You think I’m being myself.
But you don’t notice,
You don’t see,
No one ever sees.

Everyone makes mistakes,
And I sometimes don’t act human,
I sit on my haunches,
Or on the floor,
And sometimes my temper,
Let’s itself out in growls,
But you don’t notice,
You don’t see,
No one ever sees.

My friends sometimes have werewolf conversations,
Brought on by my ever-present copy of Blood and Chocolate,
They speak lies of poison silver, and
Talk of wolves’ vicious lust for human flesh,
It hurts, and I correct them because of that,
But they call my words of “real werewolves,”
An oxymoron, as if we don’t exist, or never have.
But they don’t notice,
They don’t see,
No one ever sees.

Lone wolf, Leaderless, guideless,
A young pup to face the world by herself.
I realize that my eyes hold the look,
Of a lost puppy, and I wish,
I had a pack to belong to,
I want to be part of a group,
I wish I could befriend someone like me.
But you don’t notice,
You don’t see,
No one ever sees.

My ears turn back when we argue,
My arms itch to run more than my legs do,
Sometimes hunger forces me to eat,
With a muzzle that doesn’t exist,
And I chew too much gum, as the instinct,
To gnaw is too strong,
But you don’t notice,
You don’t see,
No one ever sees.

Packless
You see them The groups The friends The families... Always there For eachother So sure of who they are But me I am alone I don't know who I am Inside I am lost in doubt And I have Nothing But fear Fear of living a lie Fear of being wrong Fear of losing everything And I can howl But no one will answer No family No group that cares For I am Packless For I am Alone

Canine, And You Are?
Here I am again, sitting in a bright room, with a dark mind, and no self-control. I do not belong here. I am Wolf, and they are trying to corner me again. I want to fight back, I am so afraid. But I dare not, for I am small, and they have fixed their Leash of Society on me. I fear it as much as any material leash. The elder woman turns her eye on me once more. My ears pin back in fear, and I barely hear what she has to say. I weave a lie quickly and gulp down the urge to whimper. I have them riveted, with my miracle recovery and my charming speech. But inside I am so afraid, so afraid. I am an Omega, a scapegoat. Scum. Yet still I am in

All I Wanted
All I wanted was to be loved, to have a family, to have a warm home. I was not given that in this life. My parents don't love me. I have been beaten, and locked in a cage, and starved. I never heard "I love you" but I'd do anything to hear that. I sit out on the porch crying. They either don't hear me or are ignoring me, like always. I get so cold at times and I have nothing warm to sleep on. I'd smell the foods they were cooking for themselves, but I never get any of it. You can see my ribs now.   It hurts to lie down because my joints grind into the floor. All I wanted was to be loved, to have a family, to have a warm home…
