There is a wolf lurking in my doorway;
our eyes holding breathless conversations
as secrets whisper through the stroke of my pen
into the awaiting lungs of strangers.

Soon young pup, you'll have nothing left to say.

My heart is woven together with tight-knit words,
blood red Poe, and thumping Hemingway-
Yet, no headstrong Omega sleeps
within this slightly cracked, ribcage embrace.

"I am unafraid of forests with teeth."
Headache.
Writers Block.

Nice! I like this concept of no ending, of breaking through the forest of teeth....great imagery here, and of course, I love your line breaks. Sorry you have a headache - I hope that clears up soon.

I like to leave the conclusion up to the reader. :)
It's more fun that way.
Oh, I get headaches a lot, and for no reason at all.
But they go away when I sleep them off. No biggie.

Beautiful as always, but the grammar police in me insists on coming out. I believe you meant 'tight-knit', not 'tight-nit'. Small thing, but there it is.

Otherwisely, your phrasing is stunning. Do keep writing, please. I always enjoy seeing your poems. (=
