Alone and Naked

I have walked for miles

on many a moonless night,

carrying a wet torch

and pockets full of dust,

ignoring the wind's consolation,

trampling on bluebells

and spear grass

with equal indifference.


I couldn't make it.

I confessed to being alone

and naked to the wolves

chasing me;

I wept like a lamb

as they bit me.

In pain and despair

I reached for the sky

and hoped for a sign.


I'm still hoping.



  • myself and me

    While you are hoping, use the torch to fight. Well penned and welcome to the site.

    That wet torch will dry out and give you the light to move on and see the moon.
    Very good emotive write.

    Welcome to MPS.

  • orchidee

    A fine write.
    What you doing, alone and naked, being chased by wolves? You need to be indoors, not out on a night like that! heehee.

  • Joe Dawson

    Alone and naked as in vulnerable , dust from one or more past relationships, and the need to confide out of despair, you must have been hurt very badly if this is taken from life. I fancy a sign has come - it's in your writing and who knows what luck may come your way. A very touching piece. Joe
