Drug me, cage me,

Posted to Action Poetry

just don't ask to hold me,
becasue I'm like a wild beast
who hasn't gotten used
to humans yet.
I haven't decided if I'm gonna
run from you or eat you.
I've been starving for years
in the wilderness
of my emotions,
hungry for a kind word
or pat on the head.
Yet I'm just as likely
to bite your hand
as lay quietly at your feet.
Don't get too close.
I'm tame, but I'm savage.
