In From the Wilderness

There will come a time when
it will be said
that I was uncivilized and feral
even at my best

Not fit for the company
of  Society and The Duties of
The Endless Circles
it always entails

That I lived and loved
like an animal, subsisting far too well
on scraps and secrets
hidden or lost or tossed aside

And it is true that
while fierce in life, unafraid
and alone, one is also
wild and free

So speak well of me
or not at all, but keep this always,
like a whisper, remembered in
your secret heart;

I only came in from the wilderness for you.

LD - 9/12
