A vicious wolf

Terrible in its beauty 

Hurt enough to be feral

But too little hurt

To not be fierce

The wolf is in all of us

The fight to survive

The fury borne

Of physicality forcefully restrained

We are all the wolf

Sharp and soft

Curious and cunning

Heavy with the harshness

Of life

Pulled by the moon

Ever forward

While the shylock sun 

Presses debts

Which can never be paid

We are all the wolf

A beast

Restlessly searching

For a tender embrace
