Paper Lion

He was a paper lion
With crayola colored mane
When he sprang from the page
She thought she was insane

He rose from the floor
Transformed into a man
He became her lover
Sculpted body and tan

He lacked no courage 
As he reached for her face
He pulled her towards him
Her heart began to race

A ravenous beast
Her clothes stripped away
He molded her passion
In his hands she was prey

Power from his body
He lets out his roar
Her King of the Jungle
She screams out for more

Looking into his eyes
Confusion and lust
She doesn't want to stop
Her brain says she must

She pushes him away
How can this be real
Her body and mind
Spinning like a wheel

She refuses to believe
He's returned to the page
A sad paper lion
Locked in a paper cage

    A modern sexy fairy tale; the lion will find his way out of the cage because it's just paper that he will tear into pieces because love must win and we are all naive and creative kids in adult bodies and fairy tales need happy endings. So, dear Richard-Coeur-de-Lion, back to crayola and paint hope into this misery! Hugs, Hanitra

    I have a painting of a lion hanging in my office. My dad painted it for me on silk. The mane is multicolored. Absolutely gorgeous. Wish you could see it. One of my students gave a present to me that is a pic of me she got off facebook and a lion photo-shopped together. It hangs in my office. Everyone knows I adore lions! n my home hangs a pic that a former student gave me of three Asiatic lions. I LOVE LIONS! Your poem is beyond words. One of your absolute best!!! SERIOUSLY!!!!! Faving it.

    Thanks Eileen, when I came here Quatrain was my primary form of poetic expression. So glad you enjoyed it. So your dad is artistic as well, how about your daughter?

    BTW...I got a lovely compliment recently...Had me flying. A woman said to me, "You have such lovely and full hair...Just like a lion's mane!" I was ecstatic. BTW...Richard, you don't often do quatrains...This one was SO SO smooth flowing...the words you used...the descriptions....just absolutely awesome! Loved it!
