This piece has roots in this piece: Luna and the Wolf.
Of Wolf and Lamb
His claws cut into the flesh of her cheek when he wants to brush his fingertips along her face, a comforting gesture only for those who don’t bear curses. She only pretends to be meek and miserable. Her innocence he longs to taint; her purity he wishes to devour. Everything symbolic about the lamb calls to the spirit of the wolf inside him, and begs him to take what has never belonged to him in the first place. It is the way with everything. Good always triumphs over evil because evil is always trying to destroy the good so as to never face shame.
For as long as the wolf must look in the mirror and see himself as the predator he will always live to devour his prey. For as long as the lamb looks in the mirror and sees herself as desirable she will always live to be undesired.
Her tears cut into the human parts of his soul as she tries to hide the damage he’s inflicted. He only pretends to be conflicted. His wild nature she longs to tame; his impulsive actions she wishes to contain. Everything symbolic about the wolf calls to the spirit of the lamb inside her, and begs her to pacify what never belonged to her in the first place. It is the way with all things. Evil always triumphs over good because good is always trying to correct evil so as to never face shame.
