if i did nothing wrong, then why is it i you have to sacrifice to the wolves? you see them killing me yet you do not stop, and i have to wonder if you ever loved me to begin with. fangs tearing at my clothes, fabric ripping from my skin, flesh searing from the pain - it's when i scream that you come to rescue me. and i'm bloody and i'm bruised and i'm tired and i'm broken, but when i'm wrapped in your arms... i'm safe. i'm always safe with you.

(yet, to you, i am a snake in heartskin; poison to your very veins.)

words pour out from me when my heart is aching so.
