In the Eyes of the Girl on Fire

Frightening Creature,

What do you fear?

What do you fear?


Could ever dominate you?

What could ever consume you?

Terrifying Brute

What do you love?

How do you love?


And hateful as you are,

Could you ever have a heart?

Horrible Beast

Why do you deceive?

Why do you deceive?


Like that should never be trusted

By a delicate girl like me

Hideous Slayer

What have you done?

What have you done?


Are known well as a licentious fool

For the wickedness that runs through you

Immoral Traitor

What do you dream?

What do you dream?


          You ever had thoughts of

Joy and felicity?


In the Eyes of The Wolf

Delicate Little Flower

Why do you run?

Why do you run?


Only thing I want is to

Protect you

Beautiful Angel

Why do you fear?

Why do you fear?


Is it to be loved by a wolf

Than wasted by a man

Sweet Young Child

Why do you cry?

Why do you cry?


Love and care for you

Is all that I ask

Pretty Little Fool

Why don’t you see?

Why don’t you see?


Past your terror and

Find the real me?

Delicious Damsel

Why do you detest?

Why do you detest?


Know nothing but what you

Have heard about me

Fair and Pure Maiden

Why won’t you come?

Why won’t you come?


Me you will find more love

Than you could ever fathom.


Written for Dr. Carmen Nolte-Odhiambo’s ENG 100: Composition I
