The Huntress


Oh the tantalizing tiger

You make me feel on fire

Why must you be so pretty and aloof

The huntress is just a big goof

The tiger is caught by another

Another, better suited I presume

To capture the tiger and keep as her own

And yet the huntress feels the tiger’s groan

How can it still be, that in the wild there could be

An attraction, to shoot down the prey

In mid-stride, the tiger taunts the huntress

The huntress stares yet shows not the emotion

The want, the craving of the tiger’s gaze

To catch a vibe would be all she would need

Yet, the huntress knows there will be defeat

The tigress triumphs and trumps them all

The heart of her tiger is stronger than the fall

It’s not for one to know nor assume

Yet obsession seems to loom

Like the freak, the huntress merely stumbles.

Falling and hitting hard she’s now humbled.

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
