Being a she wolf
In the guise of a she wolf,
I roam the forest at night
I roam, bold and confident
Knowing that the leader of my pack
Walks subtly in my shadows
Allowing me never to see him
But always making sure I keep well
In a dreary forest loaded with evils of all kind!
In the guise of a she wolf,
I glance at the moon in the darkest hour of the night
And howl
With a deep yearning to reach out to it
As if, somehow
My rightful place is up there on its soils!
In the guise of a she wolf
I battle with coyotes and hyenas
As I try to protect my pack,
My babies, and the sole wolf able
To make my heart beat!
In the guise of a she wolf
I diligently walk into his lair
As the world slumbers
After the passage of the sleep fairy
And her magical particles causing drowsiness
To one and all
Except to me and to my mate!
In the guise of a she wolf
I am free,
As free as the stars themselves
Twinkling at will and being so expansive
As to be sighted in all of the universe!
Pray, may I remain, so
A she wolf,
Lone, subtle, powerful and passionate!
Play not with me
Pull not at my hair
Tug not at my heart
Prick not my senses
Push me not to a laughing state
Attract me not to you!
See, if you play with me
The sleeping universe in me
Will explode
And eject new worlds
If you play with me
The calm sea in me
Will wake up
And drown islets
If you play with me
The subtle she wolf in me
Will get rabid
And go on a killing spree
If you play with me
My hurt feelings will allow you never
To see me again
Yes, if you play with me
I shall fly to my sleeping universe
I shall drown in my calm see
And I shall live in the guise of a she wolf
While you
Shall keep yearning to see me again!
In my secret garden
In my secret garden
Flowers bloom
Enjoying always a Spring
River trickle by
Enjoying their own freshnes
Birds chirp
Fearing never of having to face a drought
And fairies party
All day and all night long
Free and carefree
Unbothered by the dark side of existence!
In my secret garden
I rule like a mighty Queen
Enjoying the commands of her King
While knowing that she is the one more powerful
Yet, obeying and submitting out of love!
In my secret garden
I am a bubble of air
I am, free, eternal, pure and fresh
I roam the garden and all of its nooks and crooks
Wishing never to cross its limits
Caring never to wonder at what may be found far away
For my secret garden
Is enough for my survival!
