The Lion Man and I

The Lion Man and I

A Poem by Captivating Ink

Weak little lion man,

You're not as strong

As you once were.

That's okay though

Becase neither am I

So, let us take a walk

Under the star filled sky

And ponder perhaps

Why it is

That they get to be so beautiful

Up there

While everything down here

Is so ugly.

We can scream to the fireballs

About the unfairness of it all

Until my voice grows hoarse

And your mane grows thin

And we waste away

Into nothing

As many blind people before us

Have done.

I won't I won't I won't resort to that W word again, but it is threatening to tap itself onto my keyboard - my fingers are itching.
What is it about your work...three so far that I have read...and every one of them is like a one two punch to the gut of me? All I can say is that I am amazed, and engrossed, and feel somehow that you have expressed things from my own life that are yet unwritten by me. W__!

Why is he with a lion man?

I liked it though, I liked the description of his voice growing hoarse as the lion's mane thins. That was great detail.

I liked the sense of emotion you portrayed. Nice job.
