Howling into obscurity,
they scrounge for scraps.
If nothing is leftover,
they rip the flesh from your bones.
They devour you by bits and pieces
until they mimic your very being.
Their own truths flicker for recognition
in the dark valleys of their souls.
As they draw your smile upon their faces
and trample in your well worn, dusty boots,
you will hear the growls of suffocated reality
that wrestle to escape in every breath.
Though they continue to sniff you out
and run on the tail of your dreams,
you need not lick the wounds of freedom.
Skeletons of lost souls
never see the light of day.
Your truths ride in on the rising sun
and etch the canyon walls
like ancient secrets.
