Wild Heart (Madison Elizabeth Holland - Lafayette, LA

I yearn for the wild
Because being in its midst is exhilarating
Deep within the woods
Where you could be lost forever
And in the dark and bark
Behind each trunk there is an elf
A lurking black hearted witch
Full of seduction and black magick
Toadstools bloom in startling colors
The swirling gloom holds mysterious danger
Possible permanent isolation
Separation from the moral, the tame
In the depths of the woods
The heart roams wild, free
Like a wolf uncaged
With unquantified, unrestrained beauty
The woods seem to extract the feral
And encourage the shedding of emotions
Until you are naked and raw
Uncovered before the gods
And your soul is whole
Once more

When it seems like those who are supposed to love me don't get who I am. When no one has any idea of the pain my smile hides. When I am worried about being forever labeled by others. When I am the one that everyone counts on for strength. When I never show any weak…
