Sep 14 Sep 14 LONE WOLF Emily Peilan I am a lone wolf,who ran away from her pack,and left the safe shores of societal norms.Who refuses to find herself caughtin the sticky entangled websof conventional relationshipsand a comfortable life.At the slightest sign of commitmentshe will bolt like lightening,dashing away from those painful unscripted snares and nooses.For her life,for her freedom,for the excitement of the unknown.New landscapes discoveredand new souls encountered,but she is wary and carefulnot to let everyone too close.Sometimes keeping her distance,finding solace in her own company,but all the while she is craving to love and to be loved.I left to try find,the reasons for my silent pleads whispering at me constantlyto leave, pack your things and go. Forever on the run,but to where? - she wonders.“To places that make me feel alive,to seek company that amplifies my soul.”Forever running away,but from what? - she wonders.”From fear of commitment and love I feel I don’t quite deserve.”Fleeting encounters which never fully root.Familiar strangers who remain exactly that.Scurrying through my youthful years,feeling more lost than ever.Fated to be forever alone? - she wonders,and entertains the idea thatperhaps it’s not so bad after all.“I’d hurt less people.”Too volatile in her ways,too wild to be tamed.I am a lone wolf,try tame me if you dare.
