Love and Cruelty
A wolf howls a wounded cry from the hills,
And the ravens caw from the shadowed cave,
All fearing of the one who hunts and kills
The outlaws love and sends it to the grave.
As the stars dance across the blue salt sea,
The wind whispers secrets into the void,
Of the darkness that no one can foresee
That piles up all the love it has destroyed
From thick mist that floats around mountain peaks
Or hail that strikes upon the lonely tree
Hides the truth that no one utters nor speaks
Of the love that will never be set free
As the night departs and the sun arrives
Love dies and cruelty adapts to survive.
