In dreams I save us from relentless wolves as if wishing could sanctify the forest. Relentless wolves crouch, waiting. I could sanctify the forest but it may come to murder. You crouch and wait holding your breath for dawn. If it comes to murder I know you will forgive me. I hold my breath for dawn; with the darkness, the danger recedes. Please forgive my fear, I’ve built a fortress in the light. The danger recedes as darkness eases. Deep in the dense woods my fortress made of light will protect us for a little while. But deep within these woods the predators grow hungry. I can only protect us a little while. My promises are loving lies. The wolves remain hungry as the dream creeps away. I lie because I love you as if wishing could save us.
