To This Day
The wolf ran past yowling and yelping,
pure terror in his eyes,
and I wondered what I might encounter ahead,
so I continued the path for a while,
till I saw you approaching my way,
and as you passed you moved your hood,
so that I glimpsed your unashamed eyes.
You fixed on me with a determined stare,
and my heart stumbled in a beat,
as I registered the sweetest pain,
then we continued our separate ways,
and though my life went on,
I can never erase that day.
Your beauty was a beauty of the painful kind,
arousing an unquenchable desire,
you still haunt me to this day,
and so I hunt for you in every crowd.
