The Lioness

I want to be
generous with my love
but darling I always
tended to get caught up
I want to be
generous with my love

I want to be a stable person
but you have disarmed me
and further more
you have impressed upon me
the hunger of a wild animal
the lioness approaches the lion
commandingly
and I agree

You have hunted well
and disarmed me in the process
you have done it
continue to do it and you will
remain in my favor
but fail to do it any longer
and you will
remain in my favor
the lioness

by your patience
I am honored
I require slightly
more time than reading
Zen and The Art of
Motorcycle Maintenance

Occam's razor laid to rest in the weeds
broken by your complexity
I could not pick apart your puzzle
nor would I want to
even if my claws
were sharp enough
my claws are not sharp enough

and when my guard was down
you pounced
we wrestled right in the light de la sol
and I filled your whole being
with sacrificial pleasure

our roars of ecstasy
echoed across the grasslands
otherwise occupied by the timid
with eight of our nine lives
we tested our limits
sink your teeth
into my righteous golden flesh
and it will make you wish
we had done this a long time ago
your lingering purrs
of content say it all
they swim in the wind
like the honey colored
light of the African evening sun
it may be fleeting, but honey
this is love

You have for forgiven me
before I ever apologized
for my bad behavior
or have you yet needed to
oh... oh you have?
ok
I'm not so proud as I
once was
but I'm happier now
not so proud 'cause I can see
the warm savannah of
my humility
has a limited horizon
that cannot fully encompass
the lioness

I want to be so
generous with my love
but darling I always
tended to get caught up
