Him, her, them, you, I.

A collection of poems inspired from my life, anime and music.
Thank you for reading.


13. Anime

A young man

Brave soldier

A curse for a flag

His trusty steed a deer

Rode far and wide seeking a cure

Met trouble instead

A village, a lady

The wolf girl.

He saved her

Bent swords back to save her life

Pushed the gates open to make a way

She was furious

Drew the gleaming metal

Held it to his neck

A whisper of precious words,

“You’re beautiful”

His eyes capturing her heart

Sleep evaded him

Kept him up day and night

Shaking, screaming, shouting

Waking up in sweat and tears

Rolled to one side

Her face, delicate, fragile yet tough

Her scars, her pale skin, her earthy fragrance

Kept his sanity intact

She backed away

When he needed her the most


“Go away!”

And broke his heart

Why drive it into him

When all he could feel was numbness?

That sacred gift from her to him

Used in an instant to break him

Yet his steady calm eyes

His warm and strong arms

His embrace a sanctuary

His orders lightning

“We’re still alive!”

And so they gave back to nature

Peace restored, plants grew

And their love cemented in soil forever

Two worlds apart

They had to split ways

A promise to return

And they said farewell

Someday it will be Spring

Driving out the bitter memories of a fading Winter

Like fire their love will remain bright and burn fiercely

The wolf girl and the cursed boy, their new life together


Inspired from Princess Mononoke! If you can't tell yet I'm a huge Studio Ghibli fan :D and I know this anime may seem old to some of you, but no it isn't!! Its a fantastic anime.

So, (and I can't believe it actually took me this long to realise) you can only like a story once. So, I hope instead you will take time to write a short comment, especially if the content of my work spoke to you :) thank you for reading! I need to put together a poetry portfolio for a creative writing program, so any tips to improve would be appreciated :)
