Reptilian hybrid creature
Do you breathe
As others breathe?
Do you eat
As people do?
What is in
the heart of you?

Creature born in deepest space
Do you weep
As others weep?
And at night-time
Do you sleep?
What dire secrets
Do you keep?

Alien within a snare
Is your fear
Like other’s fear?
Captured now
Would you escape?
What revenge would you
Yet take?

Reptilian woman in a shell
Do you feel
As others feel?
Nature’s device
Or is it ice
Runs in your veins?
Are we the same?

About helenvalentina

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.

  1. This for me is a demanding poem but certainly worthwhile.

    Best wishes, Helen


  2. Good question, I think survival is a basic need for everyone, but I think all creatures feel the same needs for love. I definitely liked this poem.
