The 8th House

January 24, 2016

Emerging coyly from the sea
Is the careful master of forms
And the keeper of secrets:
A powerful beast with wicked tale.

He stands assertive, passionate,
Ready to defend his position by
Tooth, nail, claw, and barbed tail;
Driven first by sentiment, then pride.

There is something alluring about
His woeful gaze, as if it would
Not matter what you said aloud:
He knows your heart well already.

A creature bred to pierce through
Any obstacle put into its way.
