Leaving.

the wolf won’t allow leaving

in this pack / he is / the alpha

there is / no amnesty / for mutiny’s

pins me down  / by the  / scruff of my neck

the punishment is

unrelenting

the bear won’t protest leaving

in this den / he has / no authority

there is / no cause / for objection’s

waves me off / with a / kiss to my wrist

the goodbye is

bittersweet

the butterfly follows

in this forest / she is / the constant

there is / no direction / no destination

 but if you leave / we leave together
