My Heart is a Stomping Horse

My Heart is a Stomping Horse

A Poem by Markus Anthony
"

This is a personal telling of how it's like to finally find a home in someone's heart.

"
My heart is a stomping horse
With vigour and freedom
In my reckless journeying
I am carried to a stable
Nourished by hay
Nurtured by clear water
There is peace
Taming my naked body
Suddenly the darkness in my core
Stretched out to pure white.
A smile came clear on my face
My eyes no longer of night.

As we circle the plains
And the wind was on our side
You brushed my hair
As we danced
In the silence of twilight.

My saviour, my captor
Became my wife
She sang in her chores
And I'd be sneaking behind
And hold her on the hips,
To kiss her on the lips
The stomping horse was gone,
Gone with the wind
Here, the water is holy
And the bed is ever cozy
Lying next to purrs
And the fragrance I adore.

Seeping through her clothes
A soul and gentleness I can endure
As a wild child in troublesome rain
Drenching wet, towards a home
To a welcoming of my own

this reminds me of Gone With the Wind...even as you use that phrase...this is like a wild stallion finally being tamed by love...much like Scarlett was by Rhett...and in the end, he put her back out to roam wild, but she wanted to be with him...she finally was tamed...maybe too late.
I really like the metaphor here and you carry it so well throughout the piece.

You are married now Markus? In any event this canter of a free verse poem really describes the journey from wild and free to broken and tame. Although broken is the wrong term for in this case you chose your own rider and saddle. Just hope she remembers to take off her spurs lol! Well written and the metaphor works well.

Your metaphors are healthy & fine! Your horse metaphor starts out stomping & romping, but then it softens . . . similar to the way we settle into a relationship. I think your message represents how a loved one should help one feel energized, more than they were before, inspired -- but most people do not have this effect on their significant other, which is sad. Not being successful in love myself, I shouldn't be saying anything, but your poem makes me wonder if people do not choose a mate that makes them come alive becuz they never imagined that this is how it could be or should be. Your poem paints a picture that we should all be shooting for, but rarely do! This is an awesome depiction of love & I am usually bored to tears by love poems! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

A horse well tamed I would say. What a difference one person can make to a life. It's gone from wild winds to tranquil breeze. A nice tribute to your wife. Thank you for sharing.
