Tapping at Windows of Words

The bestial want

is it ever more?



Ache beauty

its terrible



The voyeur

at what is not



What can be taken?

What “had”?

In the seeking,

the peeping,

the glimpse

or the glance –

its desire?


Such beastly want,




forth or out

I reach –

a solid pane.


I am limited


delimited –


it would seem

I see clearly

but it cannot be



‘I’ is alone



comes from ‘you.’


So ‘I’ scopes –

a feral yearn –

and gazes…


tapping at windows

of words.

  1. Don’ t know it needs anything else. I was going to say something like ‘just enough words!’ as you managed to write words without dissecting them with your habitual philosophic precision!
    Nowt wrong with:
    ‘so i scopes – a feral yearn – and gazes’.
    Don’t care what it means when it reads with such lovely sounds ( meaning creeps in a little later and is not unimportant, but a nice idea ain’t necessarily poetry).

    I completely agree with Simon, I loved this one, a perfect sense of pace to it, and brimming just enough..
