You had risen from the heap
Smoking at the nostrils a bull seeing red
Fiery eyes advancing menacingly
Through the shadows gingerly
I’ve seen this animal in you before
And you wanted more

High speed ambulance driver
converted in a flash to savor
Swept off my feet in swashbuckling mode
A seething knight in armor you rode

I’m seeing it again OMG!
You’re giving everything you’ve got
Tempest of stormy weather
Splurged upon me, no small wonder
Told you thousand times before
(Mummy!  I’m done for)

Without an appearance
for far too long
He’s all worked up for all good reasons
A victim of his passion!

Written for d'Verse's OpenLinkNight week #106 and Mrsupole’s hosting at

  1. evoking "Mom" in a moment of passion is striking and thought provoking.

  17. It is funny how at certain times in our life we still want our Mom's, well maybe not so much during times of passion. But once our Mom's are gone then you wonder who you will need during those same times. Is it our spouse, our children, other family members, or do we just need a higher being. I think we still need our Mom's, it is just that we have to think that she is with us in a different way. And you do make me wonder what the animals want when they are weaned from their mom's and I know that a lot of them do not even remember their parents after a certain amount of time.

    Thanks for giving us something to think about for this weeks Theme Thursday. Hope you have a great weekend and take it easy too.

    God bless.
