Lone Wolf.

Underneath the starry sky

A lone wolf

Howls at the full moon

Its cries, hauntingly familiar

And, oh-so-heartbreaking.

From behind a tree

Another wolf watches

The lone wolf howling

With melancholic eyes

For, it knows the pain

Of yearning for a love

It can never touch.

-The Girl Lost In The Bookstore

P.S. Inspired from this quote: Maybe the wolf is in love with the moon, and every month it cries for a love it will never touch.

  1. Ever read the Maggie Stiefvater books? This made me think of them. Also, I nominated you for Sisterhood of the World Award-https://septembersrose.wordpress.com/2016/01/02/sisterhood-of-the-world-award/

      1. You’re so welcome! And I want to give those books another read very soon. I’ve read them through I think three times already but it’s been a few years. It’s all the quotes and random bursts of humour that I love so much. That, and they way she uses the really old folklore instead the typical.

      2. I remember a funny one- “Life was like a cake that looked good on the bakery shelf but turned to sawdust and salt when I ate it.”

  2. Diana, or Artemis – goddess of the the moon has often been pictured as someone that would hang out with wolves. They miss her.. I like the twist at the end of the poem. πŸ™‚
