A childhood

…as a child I proved the origins of night,
  tigers danced on tapestry walls:
    always these cats chasing me: teeth:
       animals with hungry furs: jaws:
          love: sorrow: lost: my gigantic fantasy
             explores the hidden world of its own:
                cartoons: forests: wells: skies:
                   a thriller in my blood:
                      ancestors of shame:
                         old skeletons:
                            once dressed in hides:
                               now psychology is wanted:
  finally she eats flesh of poetry
     and images desperately rush from the loneliest mind
          The child, her expression and a sad future
