The Wolf

The Wolf

I waited for Red outside that night
She came out the door with a wolf at her side
I took to the shadows to watch and to wait
What happened next could decide her fate

If she gave him my smile I might attack
Spew vile words I couldn’t take back
If she held his hand I could explode
Slash and rip until warm blood flowed

I could become the monster she feared in the dark
The beast from her nightmares who broke her heart
With claws and teeth I’d show no mercy
Complete the tale with no controversy

Or I could change the story rewrite the end
‘Happy ever after’ could finally be penned
Ready to step from the shadows and embrace my fate
Would I emerge as a wolf or a man named Tate
