The Predator and its Prey

Posted by kelvinbueckert on November 23, 2017 at 6:10 PM

Ugly words

like the wailing of a wolf


spill over the glass


as if a drunken bartender

were to continue pouring

despite the desperate protests


of a victim drowning


in the storm of an unnatural passion


that drives the frantic paws


the hungry clawing


digging for something to devour


and after


as the winds of lust


are fading


with the shell


lying on that soiled bed


only the wolf remains standing


tall with power


as the pictures of this predator


are shoved away


into a dark closet of the mind


where ghosts of trauma wander


those twisted words


remain, haunting


all those huddled alone


in the corner at the party


all those forgotten in the alley


all those starving themselves for a better body


but still, desperately hungry


to find identity


when the truth is, what these animals say may be ugly

but that can never change your true beauty


what they do may be lustful, hateful

but that can never change the truth that you are lovely


what they have taken may have left you feeling worthless


but that can never change the truth that you are priceless

in the eyes of God…
