A Tiger's Heart



A Tiger’s Heart: A Book of Poetry

by Kandace Blevin  (Author)


In your hands, you hold over 30 years of my poetry. These poems were born out of joy, pain, love, agony, lust, and anger. They begin when I was a very young girl, and span into adulthood, marriage, divorce, and motherhood. 

I invite you to share in the passion that has ruled my untamed heart for many years.

Lies a little ember, burning,
Silently awaiting, the fuel to strike the flame.

My shirt clung wetly to my skin - I was waiting.

You've eyes that pierce deep in my heart
Plunge into my soul

I will never turn to see

Your Queen - Poem 

I once hoped to dazzle you
With my pretty charms
I wanted to bewitch you
Wrap you in my arms
Do you love me still?
Am I still your queen?
Do I still enchant you?
Is it on me you lean?

Lady Lust 

Lust is a savage woman
Moving stealthily
Stalking her prey
Her husky lilting laugh lingers in the night

My Life of Before 

I'm so happy - so utterly happy,
I'm floating upon cloud nine;
But far down below,
I'm being towed into my life of before.
