Tiger Of Love

From nowhere you came
Gentle as a lamb
to me

Out of the jungle of life
you bounded
straight into my heart

The empty space
filled by your presence

Where you romp and play
surrounded by my love
You grow each day

more loved and dear
in every way
My Beloved!

    I love the way you express your love for a tiger, and it's also possible to see the tiger as a person you know. Very cleverly written. You've captured many of the qualities we respect and love about tigers, and people that sometimes behave like them. (Report) Reply

    William Blake famously wondered how the same God could create both the tiger and the lamb. That's because he saw them as creatures who are polar opposites. You are not dealing with contradiction here but rather integration.
    When the tiger of love bounds into your life, he contains within the lamb's gentleness. Both/and, not either/or. And I can see this love as it grows is characterized by the tiger's fierceness (passion) and the lamb's softness (gentleness) . It's the ideal balance. (Report) Reply

    Start of the poem is excelling but last stanza cools it down. First four stanzas are beautiful and I think complete the poem. (Report) Reply
