The Night Unforgotten

=================== I dread the night I fear its might I fear the time most When the wolf came against my walls Shattering it in vain Leaving behind a souvenir of a broken heart in a broken body I fear also the howling and what preceded it Its fierce look, long dripping fangs that clipped my tongue to my lips I mourned my unheard wailing A ghost I was I dread the sight of the remaining me A bruised,shattered, and unripe harvest So, I stand in the rain With the hope of washing away the stain It was gone all in a few seconds The bruises healed in a few weeks But the memory Oh the memory, a watermark Imprinted on my broken soul, Sealed in my mind A graffiti written with my blood in its hall of fame A constant reminder of my lost dignity I dread the night I fear its might Cuz in it awaits the nightmare of the midnight wolf
