The Wolf With the Red Roses by HeartRaped The Wolf With the Red Roses by HeartRaped
*edit new years eve 2010* This pic has been favourited loads which I didn't expect at all so thanks to all of the hundreds that have fav'd it! I did a reverse image search on tineye and saw it had been used by a lot of websites and some of them are using it to make money. Please if you must use this without asking permission at least credit me and please don't make money off my work. I don't even make money off my work. Cheers Guys *end edit*

I was listening to the song "You took the words right out of my mouth" by Meatloaf and for the first time the words at the beginning made sense to me,

On a hot summer night, would you offer your throat to the wolf with the red roses?

Will he offer me his mouth?

Yes

Will he offer me his teeth?

Yes

Will he offer me his jaws?

Yes

Will he offer me his hunger?

Yes

Again. Will he offer me his hunger?

YES

And will he starve without me?

Yes

And does he love me?

Yes

Yes

On a hot summer night, would you offer your throat to the wolf with the red roses?

Yes

I bet you say that to all the boys.


The wolf offers a person the world, offers themself totally and completly. The person becomes hypnotised by the wolfs words and gestures and they give themself to the wolf, even as far as dying for the wolfs love. The wolf however is only offering the person what they want so that the wolf can get what it wants in return.

I have never been the wolf,

The wolf has come and gone many times during the course of my life, whispering sweet nothings when they want something or a favour is needed, but when they have what they want they are gone again, and the roses with them.

I didn't take the original picture I photoshopped it to include the roses. Since I made it loads of people have used it without my permission all over the web.

Right, then I'm sure. The wolf's called Nepthene, and he lives at the White Wolf Sanctuary in Oregon. :)
I knew I had seen him before! x)

as much as i hate to say this wolves gave us the rose(or olive branch) and we gave them a shot to the head (with a gun or bow...) any way i rember hearing on a nature showe that was on the air befor the re-intraduction (wich only took place in 3 states) the one man could wipe out wolves from exzistznce in 6 months and after the re-intraduction they'er population in those states rose up to a high enoph level in those states(3 states) that they are allowing them to hunt them again! idiots why not nisted of hunting them why not take the extra wolves out of those 3 states and put them in to the states that they are endangerd and also the states that they are extent(or gone from exzistance) that would be a smarter idea!
