“It was only a dream, but I still knew
the soul behind your eyes wasn’t yours.
Like a wolf in sheep’s clothing.”
It was only a dream, but I still knew the soul behind your eyes wasn’t yours. Like a wolf in sheep’s clothing, you watched me with a predator’s eyes. I was enthralled and terrified at the same time, not knowing what to expect. Not knowing if you were truly there every now and again when I saw how the sunlight made your blue eyes even more striking. And though he didn’t hurt me while living under your skin — this time — nothing was stopping him. Not even me. Isn’t it strange? Even in my dreams I’m frozen into submission, waiting for what was to come.
While my love for you
will never change,
I can’t help but wonder
if you’re the one
looking back at me.
