Once Upon A Life

Once upon a life

I was the little girl alone in the woods

With a blood red cape to protect my soul

And a basket of knifes and blades

The wolf was my friend

And the man was the monster

The house was abhorrence

Left to molester

I walked with the wolf

A lone wolf was I

We walked through the forest

Leaving trails of the misbegotten

To rest in the dark

I held his hand

He held mine back

I stared at him wide eyed in awe

And he told me that, once upon a life

I was adored.
