A Tiger


Life as a tiger would be prowling around
Hunting swiftly without making a sound
Black and orange stripes falls across his skin
Little do you know about the roar it has within

The tiger quickly moves upon to his feet
Searching the jungle looking for something to eat
The lion might be king of the jungle
But the tiger kills and they still stay humble

The rare colours of orange and the black
If He sees pray he’s sure to attach
There eyes in night time can see twenty twenty
Black is the colour of death and it has killed plenty

People see tigers as quite violent creatures
But if you dig deep inside you’ll find some peaceful features’
The tiger tooth is white and pointed all around
The lion is called the king but the tiger should be crowned

So when you see a tiger
And you don’t feel very prepared
Just have a read of this poem
Then you wont feel that more scared

    I would love this were i to see what world it is in. Trees, streams, the air...say something about the air...where is this magnificent beast bred, what does he(magestic) or she look like, her whiskers, that long seductive tail. Do you love this creature, you have orgasms in your head...the fear it brings, the terror of it's claws...swift or soft with deadly blows....
    YOU GET WHAT I MEAN. i thought you had a beautiful piece, just didn't play enough scenes in my head. She is too curious to confine in rhymes...let go! Let go! (Report) Reply

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
