dark lights

There are wolves in your eyes.
They aren’t vicious or hungry
but are strong,
and could tear me to pieces
with little effort.

Please don’t let them
turn you
into a violent thing.
You’re a quiet one these days
and that might mean they’re winning.

I ask why they’re there
but you don’t understand the question.
Your mind is overwhelmed
with wolf thoughts and wolf wants.

    This made me think of mental illness…depression…and the wolf eyes make a powerful impact. Lovely and sad poem.
