Wondering wolf

Two decades old, Soft skin light toned, Bushy brown hair, skinny slim built, Eyes blue as the sky, Emotions and mind, All so very shy. Born a Capricorn, Raised in a working class, Ball full of energy, shattering plates and glass, Father held the iron fist, Mothers mind in a mist, Smacking, screaming, shouting, Reminders of him as a kid, While she was there to kiss. Talented athlete at school, Hung out with kids to cool, Social pint was empty, Only half filled with Pepsi, Peers drank beer, while I stayed in the clear, Teachers had crumpet faces, telling me to tie up my laces, I wish id listen, But crunched an apple, kneeling down in the chapel, ignoring those prayers, fed up with restricted care. Flickering strobes, Shiny lazer beam lights, Bikie gangs making me feel so bright, Strange faces everywhere, in a cosmos they share, lit up like christmas, While satan grants their wish list, Drenched in sweat, I realised I was running, from throbbing headaches and pains, Cloudy Sunday mornings, driving me insane. Spaceship landed, Half matured man, half wondering wolf, Paws deep in mud, preventing my quest, for a partner in love, Mary howls her hisses, in strong gale winds, Sunrise to sunset, Fed up waiting for him, To taste a teaspoon of courage, To pop a balloon full of wisdom, Sitting too comfortably, In his own prison.
