Tapping at Windows of Words

The bestial want

is it ever more?

Evermore.

.

Ache beauty

its terrible

hunger

.

The voyeur

at what is not

“mine.”

.

What can be taken?

What “had”?

In the seeking,

the peeping,

the glimpse

or the glance –

its desire?

.

Such beastly want,

evermore,

grasping

.

forth or out

I reach –

a solid pane.

.

I am limited

constrained

delimited –

.

it would seem

I see clearly

but it cannot be

touched.

.

‘I’ is alone

with-out.

With-in

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..
