These words
that are my own
Are my blood and
are my bones.

Confess

I confess 
I am a wolf that stalks the shadows of the wind 

I plead my guilt 
For I howl to a moon I tore out of the sky 

I bear no pretense 
That I live free from falsity 

I admit 
I clean my teeth with my tongue til savagely white they gleam 

I accept 
That my skills in sharpening knives I used to sharpen my lethal talons 

I understand 
My jaw restricts me purposefully from shredding what my claws should not 

I will stand true
That my tongue has slipped and spilt the deepest shade of red 

I bow my head 
And welcome regret 
For I trust myself 
That my guilt holds hands with reason
