Biography of Amber Tiger
Hello! I am the stay at home mother of three beautiful children. I am divorced which is the inspiration for the first poem I am submitting entitled 'The Rage to Be'. I have dabbled in poetry my whole life and have written many a lullabye for my children as I play classical acoustic guitar. I am attending school online at Kaplan University. I have just attained my associates degree and am continueing on for my bachelors in computer programming. I currently live in Albuquerque, New Mexico but have traveled and lived all over the world. I lived in Germany for 12 years as my father worked for the U.S government. He was not in the military so we always lived off base which made life quite interesting. It was great. I traveled all over Europe during those years and experienced things most people only dream of. New Mexico is beautiful but I will be moving soon to Louisiana to reside with the Love of my life! My best friend and comrade since my youth. Good times are a'comin! ! Anyway! That's me! Hope you enjoy the words I have to offer... Amber Tiger
Amber Tiger Poems
Nightmare upon nightmare of things to come And those frightening memories of the past The dream of the flowers rarely to surface And when it does it never lasts
An Act Out Of Spite

Always, forever invading me, like a lost soul finding it's eternal cause. You have the key to my heart and enter the door without thinking about how you affect me. You drain me leaving only a lost confused child trying to redeem the person she once was. You kill me constantly yet there are no scars to remind you (or me for that matter) how much you hurt me the last time you came near.
Uncanny are the willing so happily unwilling I pretend I want to feel you cover me need to feel the perfect bend Hear the pulsating of your heart as I stare hungrily into your eyes To know that here, tonight, my only forever, you will shed of your cunning disguise
Mr. Moon (A Lullabye)
Mrs. Sun has gone to bed Laying down her head Behind the mountains that reach so high Into her velvet sky
Uncanny are the willing so happily unwilling I pretend
I want to feel you cover me need to feel the perfect bend
Hear the pulsating of your heart as I stare hungrily into your eyes
To know that here, tonight, my only forever, you will shed of your cunning disguise
I begin to explore every part of this stranger in the night
The creases, the thrills, the smoothness, the chills, through closed eyes see this perfect sight
The rythem, the rhyme, the non-existence of time as you move farther int
