Maybe Tigers Swim at Night

Maybe Tigers Swim at Night

A Poem by Summer Windton

Read with an open mind and a analytical thinking.


Maybe a bumblebee flies.

Maybe the water's blue.

Maybe we're nothing but specks on a board,

And just maybe, tigers swim at night.


I never knew, what you said,

The water was crashing too loud.

My ears are straining,

My heart suffocating,

My dear, maybe tigers swim at night.


You say, no, they're asleep at night, and I say,

You should know, the world awakens at night.

  Aren't I right?


What would happen to everything we were,

If there was nothing left but water and tigers.

Rivers long, and rivers wide,

A forbidden touch in the middle of the night.

Lips like roses,

My love sleeps suddenly.

Never underestimate,

My power, my dear.


'Cause when the stars awaken,

At night, we're fast asleep.

But somewhere in the world,

  Some tigers are swimming at night.

I love this poem! It reminds me what I always keep in mind, you never know and its not confusing to answer your question :) It's beautifully written, with so much wonder you put in this it feels like your telling a fable. :3

It could be obtainable, weather permitting, God willing because everything is within the realm of possibility. No doubt!

I'm like the wind. I come and go. Born of the wind, and I will go back, with the wind. Some write for fortune, some for fame. Some because of grief or envy. I write because it was my destiny. .. more..
