a lonely ribbon of water winds it's way through the bare rocks of it's bed
trees are watching from the banks
mocking the stream with it's laughter in the breeze
a taunt the stream makes back, it's laughter scornful
rainbows race across it's surface
dancing light as it reflects two forms
one a dreamer, thier heart torn
the other tawny, tail swishing
help me dear lion
enfold me with your strength
I no longer wish to see into this stream
only to hear it laughing back at me.
your feathers find me
a sweet caress of downy fluff
as I lean on you my heart grows
hides me from everything I fear.
such a powerful friend, my griphling
purity in your words
hidden meanings in your gaze
will you keep me, my lion?
or will you swallow me whole?
do you even see me in your honeyed gaze?
my heart is within your claws
tear me apart dear lion
and slake your thirst upon my beating heart
all the love I have is in dreams of you
your strength is what makes me go on
please don't turn your head from me
simply for another beast.
a thousand words could not describe your beauty
a thousand lonely cries in the night of your desire
break me to pieces if you must
but let me be yours alone
this dreamer has but one dream left dear lion
this dreamer is for you
golden visions of your name
pawprints you've lain across my soul
how many lions have your grand wings beast?
would you hold me in them once more?
I wish only for your touch, your heart, my lion
as you've already devoured mine.
