In my heart
I have two tigers
One feeds on love
The other, liars.

Hello Andy, I don't know what to say to these few words because they contain truths and hurts that are personal I'm sure. Be well. Susan

Andy, your rendering relates a message that could consume a few paragraphs to tell from one who had not thought through what you wanted to convey. The tiger that feeds on pure hearts is the one we all wish would flourish. Pragmatism tells us this is not the reality of the situation. You have written from the heart and that is always a prerequisite of an influential work. The deceased writer of songs, J. Cash, proclaimed in one of songs that it was best to, "keep it from the heart and down to earth, sing the songs that make a difference and give us all our monies worth". I have attempted to subscribe to that same philosophy with my work. Your poem substantiates the validity of that belief. I bid you love and peace my dear friend. Jon Michael

the muse seems to be mightily blessing those inspired today, Andy. Another wee gem of a write that is pure carrat gold... I read your last word as "lions" to start! :)) As others have picked up, this is such a neat, concise way of saying so much. Motivations of the just and true are the heart of both. Excellent! :)) xx

OMG Andy!! this is a WOW Moment!!
shredding them to smithereens
and dipping deep inside the honey jar
the truth is sweet even if it sucks

Love's Visors

I feed on liars too. :~) I abhor being lied to!
Love is a powerful thing... hopefully the tiger is satiated and calmed by love rather than making it more ravenous... although passion isn't a bad thing either... :~)

Wow! Quite an impact with these scant words! Well done, Andy!

Whew. I thought I felt the screen shake from one tiger's growl or was it the other tiger's purring? I like this short write that tells so much of you. Powerful. Liz

Short, but great, Andy. Reminds me of that Indian saying about the two wolves (whichever you feed more is the one that prevails). I have a foot-long, two-headed tiger tat on my thigh, and it (they) symbolize very similar sentiments. Love the pic, too.
