I writhe, I wreathe for I’m neatly twisted, 

You’ll never unravel me, my heart unknown. 

You hold the tether on my talons tight fisted

I’m tenacious, a survivor bold, 

You can tie me in knots, try to keep me near;

I’ll escape, live without your blackness owned. 

I don’t quit; you shouldn’t trap me for fear, 

I’ll catch you first, she-wolf who swiftly bites. 

Your callous ropes hurt, but I’ll disappear

Love doesn’t choke, it’s not uninviting

Love is a freedom, not a smoke screen

But you’re in my den, I’m growling my spite

My name isn’t “Sweetheart,” don’t demean me;

Power struggle invoked, within your ropes —

I’ve held dear, but know I’m incharge here. 

Droplets of blood, I swear I won’t be broke

Such a darkness in you raptured by my light. 

Goodness will win; she-wolves don’t quit, they’ve hope. 

My love, no more traps, let my heart be free

Your wolf, let her breathe, she’ll return to thee

I writhe, I wreathe, for I’m neatly twisted. 

You hold the tether on my talons, tight fisted.

Poem: Pantoum – ” Closed for Hope.”


You were Hope, the reason my thoughts travelled.

My only use to you,  makes me dislike you.

I’m built to connect, not coldly unravel,

Want how I live, be prepared to give too.

My only use to you, makes me dislike you.

We’ve played the game two-hundred times well,

Want how I live, be prepared to give too.

Problems attempting dates –we’re broken shells.

We’ve played the game two-hundred times well,

The chances of me saying yes — go away.

Problems attempting dates–we’re broken shells.

What a team we make, shutting problems away.

What a team we make, shutting problems away.
