When the Lioness met the Virgin

She was wrapped in loving arms

That humble virgin, shy and strong

Kept the cub away from harm

 

When the Lioness met the Libran

 She trusted far too soon

Though his justice scales were tarnished

He struck down her impugn

 

When the Lioness met the Crab

She admired his will to dream

He was brave enough to find himself

As he drifted far upstream

 

When the Lioness met the Gemini

She felt confused and overwrought

While one twin was a lifelong friend

The other left her on the spot

 

When the Lioness met the Aquarian

She was taken by surprise

The fickle water bearer possessed

A hidden kindness in her eyes

 

When the Lioness met the Ram

She promised not to tell

The layers of depth she saw beneath

That ram’s indifferent shell

 

When the Lioness met the Archeress

Though she was half a world away

Her trusty arrows flew overseas

A promise they’d meet one day

 

When the Lioness met the Scorpion

She was smitten from the start

With her tail so sharp and beautiful

She pierced the lion’s heart

 

When the Lioness met the Bull

She did not know at the time

That the smiling Taurean’s steadfast heart

Would stop beating in its prime

 

When the Lioness met the Lion

And those feline tears she cried

She wanted to roar for him that summer night

But she still had too much pride

 

When the Lioness loved the Lion

She loved him bone to bone

But she remained maneless and nameless and silent

And the lioness hunted

 

Alone.

So, this is day one of my crazy art dump that's been piling up.

This one's a little different from the usual because I don't think I've posted a poem with an actual rhyme scheme on here yet. Does this still count as free-verse? I'm usually too lazy for anything other than that because most of my poems are just sort of a stream-of-consciousness angsty brain-dump. It's not entirely in chronological order, because it wouldn't have worked for pacing, but some of them are. The signs themselves obviously aren't in order. Also, two of them are missing because while I was writing, I couldn't think of any Pisces or Capricorns that I knew..? (At least I think?? Sorry, if I missed you! Actually, I just realized that a fabulous poet friend of mine on dA is a Capricorn, so CRAP, forgive me Wongy!!! It's so many birthdays to keep track of, holy crap! x'D Plus the Western zodiac confuses me lol)

Hope you enjoy! :heart:
