Animals Who Giveth

I feel oh so human the way you make me love you;
never perfect, yet you always jolt in the same circuit
through my animalistic veins -
I question myself, will I ever be the same?
Moving hands to grab hold of the reigns
better than any other man would, like anyone should...
however, being human never felt
so raw, so wrong, so right
until predator and prey made contact tonight.
Be the huntsman who knows no fright -
plan accordingly to bring me to a spiritual light
to make me see my present day with eyes so new
through this pagan religion that weakens my knees
to worship you
on the underbrush, with thorns that fray.
Under the moonlight...you giveth to me.
Prayers loaded and aimed at the heavens...please, never taketh away!
