Candlewitch

Wolf...


Wolf...

the syncopated beating
of her recalcitrant heart
resounds in her ears
as tears stop and start
again...
she questions
all her mind tells her
to be true,
and she recalls
whispers in the dark
and reflections of him.
she resists...
the power he tries
so hard to gain
over her mind
and all that she is
if he should look
deep into her eyes,
he will find
revulsion...
for all of the lies of his kind!

    A great rebuke so well presented, Cat! Classic!

    • Candlewitch

      dear Louis,

      thank you so much for your support of Heather.

      *hugs, Cat

    • Heather T

      I'm more than honored that you were moved to pen this, Cat. It's gorgeously scripted, as all of your writes are, and even with the subject being what it is, I adore the tribute of it. Thank you, and thank you for being a true supportive and honest friend to me. *kiss*

        dearest Heather,

        I hated how he lied to you and preyed upon your loving, giving spirit. I just had to write something for you. I think we are all disappointed in him. but not all of us were as badly used. I hope this poem helps you to feel better. we all care about you!

        *hugs, Cat
        ever, eddy

          Love the last words about looking and seeing revulsion. Great word to describe that creature's character! Great work :)

              Same here Cat. Appreciate your words of support and bravery for those that were taken in. Glad the dust has cleared ...for now.

                A deserved tribute to a very brave outing of this dangerous wolf that Heather posted for all to read recently and loud applause for these well chosen words of rebuke.

                  Well written, well said, And I'll say no more other than I hope this can be put in past - thankfully he has gone.

                  • Candlewitch

                    hello Michael,

                    I hope he doesn't come back under another name!

                    *hugs, Cat

                    This is probably one of the most relatable poems I've ever read. You don't understand or question the lies until it's too late.....
                    Great write as always!
                    Sincerely, Azuranna Nightsong

                    • Candlewitch

                      thank you, dear Azura! it gives me a case of the creeps to think hoow many other stalkers are out there!

                      *hugs, Cat

                    • Goldfinch60

                      Well said Cat, people like him are despicable and we are well shot of him. HT is strong and knows that we all support her.

                      • Candlewitch

                        dear Goldfinch,

                        I still worry for her, as he is out there and knows where she lives!

                        *hugs, Cat
