Wolves

Stay very quiet
The wolves are
Sniffing at your door

Dim the lights
And close your eyes
And you can pray
That they
Won’t come around anymore

What are they after?
Will they be in your dreams tonight?
Is it your scent they breathe?
Or the blood that you spilled,
Running away in the moonlight?

The view
From the trees
At the scrapes on your knees
The taste of the crisp air you breathe
I’ll bet you still have a few tricks up your sleeve
Though it won’t be long till they leave
The wolves are at your feet
When awake or
In a dream

Dim the lights
And close your eyes
They’ll get you with their teeth
Or with their lies
When awake or in a dream
Whether calm as death 
Or with a scream
In a disguise
Not what they seem
They have you down
End scene
