Love Poem: Overwhelming horses

Overwhelming horses

Strong, muscular, moving in sync,
like an ocean of lavender their bodies move.
Waves of clapping hooves consistently beating
the earth like thunder beats the sky.
This is how my heart moves,
like a panther to its prey,
towards the stampede.

Suffocation, intoxication, devastation.
Refusing to be tamed as sure as life is to 
death.
Spring, summer, night,
day, month, week,
hour to minute, 
run in time.
Refuse to be trampeled.
