The lone wolf
Is my partner,
In the wilderness
Of the night.

The thrush
My little songbird,
Forever
By my side.

Yet as the day
Turns into night,
I feel
A presence-new.

A haunting
Melody of night,
Fraught with
Stealthy danger-you.

For loneliness
Is my fortress,
And the wilderness
My home.

My little songbird
The felicity
And fortitude
Of my poem.

As I walk away
From the murky night,
Bidding farewell
To my friends.

Your spider fingers
Caress my back,
The shadow
Of the end.

hooowwwwwlll!!! vita k! when will you ever learn...that the big bad wolf is big and really bad?? :P

But the little song bird...depends on what context! Alternative to the wolf...well then shoot the birdie! Else..listen to the birdie!!

That's my interpretation.
