Poetry Wednesday: The Wolves

The Wolves

seven days until the wolves come for me
slights and sins against me
drag me down the mountain
away from the arms of my beloved

seven days until the wolves come for me
may the angels open their arms
save me from myself

seven days until the wolves come for me
my beloved betrayed me
once more giving me away

seven days until the wolves come for me
I caused no true folly
for which I will be punish

seven days until the wolves come for me
so I must kill my beloved
for his murderous ways

seven days until the wolves come for me
run I must and hope they see the truth

seven days until the wolves come from me
lost in the forests
trying to find distant higher ground
proclaiming my innocence
with every snag, every stumble

seven days until the wolves come from me
when they should have come for him
traded me to pay for his crimes
meant not enough to him

seven days until the wolves come for me
after I seek revenge upon my beloved
for his treasonous heart

seven days until the wolves come for me
and find my beloved’s corpse instead
