Ferocious starving thing
hiding in the dark
I know you're waiting patiently
stalking me, to make your mark.
I know your teeth are sharp
your claws bred for rending.
There's danger in your hunting ways
And an appetite that needs tending.
I smile my secret smile
toward your shadow laced haunt
my red hood falls, white throat exposed
I’m crushing violets in my reckless jaunt.
I've never feared, dear forest beast
In the dark, sharp and furry.
In your growl I only find temptation
I don't do weak, you wild thing
But in your powerful frame I find connection
Opening my hand
My red velvet robes fall wide
revealing all my secrets
showing all the scars I meant to hide.
You see me now, the price I've paid
to walk free in this forest realm
Will you choose me, now
claim me now, does my own beast overwhelm?
I know how to bleed and how to feed
you great, ferocious starving thing.
I can see your face and meet your eye
dark and lonely monster king.
Will you lurk just out of reach
In shadows I feel but cannot breach?
The choice is yours
you lovely beast
To choose to become the tamed
To come to me, walk with me
Let me ease your tired, bleeding, hungry
by speaking sweetly to your lonely.
I call you to me,
Promise gentle, loyal and free
I’ll let you feed from the hope of me
But you must choose
To only ever
