“A wild thing in captivity fosters a reluctant pity, indeed.”| ~K
(My quote is inspired by D.H. Lawrence,
Wild Things in Captivity.) 🐾
tethered and bound
by the burdened air you breathe
endless realms of darkness ~
but one tiny tendril of hope.
your infinity of words!
reckless cascades at first, then
aroused, in controlled, brazen flames ~
forever piercing wanton souls.
in search of
neither flesh nor fantasy,
from your safe, walled sanctuary
intemperate, yet refined surrender ~
you found me there
in the margins of those faded
pages of your heart ~
that long forgotten tableau.
