savagely seeking

savagely seeking

A Poem by Kara Emily Krantz


there is something savage to
this suture.

stretching at its seams.

i am tearing through thorn bushes
seeking the scent of your skin
and the overturned soil
at your feet.

i am digging with my hands;
my nails are filling with dirt
and you're smiling down at me
in that sardonic way
and i could
just
scream.

but there is something savage
to this second

slowly slipping by.

i am pausing in my efforts to reach you
to beseech you
to seek you.

i stare at you with windswept eyes
and the dirt is smudged against my temple
and you're touching it gently with your thumb.
your fingerprints are on me
and i'm numb,
i'm so numb.

there is something so savage
to your smile.

and i'm crouched here, waiting,
begging to be
beguiled.

This makes me think of how some people can still manipulate and control someone with a sneaky false kindness... they make the person feel like they are only wanted by them but with tacked.

I have always been a big fan of your poetry and nothing has changed.

Very deep and eloquent. A profound message of savagely seeking your true hearts desire while being fascinated by the apple of your eye at the same time. Great poem. :)
