    The Tigress

    As she sleeps,
    You turn away.
    Your gaze held prisoner to others.
    Breaking the vows,
    You break her heart.
    Your desires give her nothing but pain.
    As she reaches out to embrace,
    You again are lost to another.

    As she weeps,
    You walk away.
    Your touch caresses another.
    Breaking the silence,
    You break her bones.
    She sacrifices all to no end.
    She begins to stir,
    To long for freedom.

    Someone,
    Plead for the Tigress to awaken!
    When the fantasy melts away,
    Reality is a brutal curse.
    When she awakens,
    Peace will end.
    She is strong enough to walk alone.
    She will conquer,
    She will silence your passion to ashes.​

    why, my dear empress, i had no idea you were so well accomplished in the finer art of prose & verse. but i should think no less of a women as agreeable as yourself.

    very good work. i can certainly sense that you are a passionate person.

    feelings of sadness are only natural and help construct our ultimate self. your poem re-activated long forgotten memories, your sincerity is something that very much spoke me. it made me sad.

    but remember, i enjoy being sad. thank you for your kindness in sharing.
