tamer and hawk by thom gunn

Tamer and Hawk by Thom Gunn
I thought I was so tough, But gentled at your hands, Cannot be quick enough To fly for you and show That when I go I go At your commands.
Even in flight above I am no longer free: You seeled me with your love, I am blind to other birds? The habit of your words Has hooded me.
As formerly, I wheel I hover and I twist, But only want the feel, In my possessive thought, Of catcher and of caught Upon your wrist.
You but half civilize, Taming me in this way. Through having only eyes For you I fear to lose, I lose to keep, and choose Tamer as prey.

freedom and its owner
we are on a journey
the power of not knowing
where i end and you begin

my scent on your skin
my name floating in your dreams
taste my tomorrows

within you

the afternoon without you



your words
your thoughts
your dreams
consume me
so far away
so close
at hand

the place before tears

afraid of this loneliness

quiver in the dark

surrender your lips

soft wet promises slither

A man had given all other bliss,And all his worldly worth for this, To waste his whole heart in one kiss Upon her perfect lips.~Alfred, Lord Tennyson

forget me

you won't forget me
one day when a certain girl
who looks a certain way
saunters by and catches your eye
i hope you'll remember
there was a strange eyed girl
who loved you so
the one you cast away
who will never erase
your memory
You will hardly know who I am or what I mean, But I shall be good health to you nevertheless, And filter and fibre your blood.
Failing to fetch me at first keep encouraged, Missing me one place search another, I stop somewhere waiting for you.

"it was my duty to understand everybody, becoming delirious,
weak, unyielding, compromised, heroic, vile,
loving until i wept, and sometimes an ingrate,
a saviour entangled in his own chains,
all dressed in black, toasting to joy."
pablo neruda
