White Tiger

The smile creeps along your face
Like a crook in the night
And to my delight
You are standing in the right light
Making my body tight with the tension
Leaving me hanging on to the suspension
But I have just one question
And there should only be one answer
As the night prowls, stalking us like a panther
I ask what is it that you can’t do?
I am sprawling out on the mantle
Trying to tell you that this is my time
You can sit there and listen to my rhymes
You can tell me that the words I use are beautiful
But I just find them useful
In telling you what you need to know
So tell me what I need to know
Handle me with care or let me go
Don’t give me a blank stare
Take a hold…
And hold on tight
Because to my delight
You are standing in the right light
While I mingle in the shade
Your smile creeps along your face just the right way
And I’m always left forgetting what I wanted to say
I keep saving it for another day
I will dress up and doll up
Fall asleep sitting pretty
When you don’t show up
I mean that literally
You were born in the right light
Looking at me from across the moons’ shine
As though our paths were designed to cross
For a split second everything else stops
And then it goes
And I see how many musicals made from your heartbeat
Can be masterfully composed
I suppose I should be tired
Of this never-ending surrendering
These moments that are always pending
And while I am fending for my own
You slink up behind and remind me I’m not alone
Your smile creeps along your face
Like a crook in the night
And to my delight
You are standing in the right light
Making my body tight with tension
And I have only one question
What exactly is your intention??
