there are days i
want to run with wolves.

to howl at the stars because
the moon has never done
anything for me, and swallow roses
like their thorns never
existed.

but this cage -
it seems there's no way
out,
and i fear it's
too
deep
down
for anyone to hear me.

life is just a zoo full of
all our monsters, and
[it's our fault] we
can't stop
feeding them.
I don't have much to say anymore.

Don't feed them.

I am not a zookeeper, reason why? They don't get paid well enough.

I don't think you understand what this poem has done for me. This very may well have changed my life seeing as writing is such a huge part of it. You seem to have opened an entire new branch of writing for me. I have never really understood inspiration or expire emceed it at this level untill now. Thank you
