this cracking whip

My heart
growls like a tiger tamed
such a shame you didn’t hear it
prowling through that place where you were hiding
I saw you first
and I wish I hadn’t.

Your eyes were giving you away
your voice was sweeter than you
and I do want to devour you
one day
my way.

This place is a circus
I am intending on running
faster
I am my own ringmaster
tougher than this cracking whip
louder than this trick
and worth more.

I don’t need you to chase me
tame me or blame me
for these things that I do
you are an audience
paying a price
expecting something wild
whilst covering your eyes
and forgetting to breathe.

This is no act.
