And as quiet as a mouse
she walked in a shadow
swift as an eagle
but with the purpose of a lioness
love is deaf, show it don't just say it
even though it's going to take a bit
show me that you love me.
please don't leave me be.
i love you
sometimes i feel the blues,
when i'm not with you
Here is a poem that I wrote on StoryBird: https://www.storybird.com/longform-story/words-freedom/7 It may not contain a verb in the subjunctive mood, but you could use it as inspiration.

I'm driving along with the traffic
Going about my day
Driving without even thinking
Maybe I'll care to the children later on
I'm just being the me I can be
when out of nowhere
you spill your chemicals in my highways and my roads
stopping all traffic
You contaminate us and sicken us
You make me worry about my kids right around the corner
So I hurry home
My kids are present
but their lives are gone
then you cut us and beat us
burn us and trap our homes with plastic
Are we food or playthings?
You're killing yourself now when you contaminated us and eat us
You pollute our naturally beautiful homes
I can't even see my way around traffic
What are we to you?
We feel and see and think just as you do
And you want to eat us but you pollute your source of food
Does that make sense?
I just want to be the fish I am
Travelling in school's of fish
And driving in a traffic of fish
But you kill us and beat us and consume us
I just want to be the fish I am
Floating aloof in my once crystal clear water
free of plastic and toxic waste
With my family of fish
But you kill us off with your waste
(sorry I didn't really know how to end it)
Wandering the ocean in search of lands I’ve never seen before, I encountered a fearful storm.
It seemed so dark and vicious, but what’s more
It looked as if it was undoubtedly… warm.
And then I gave myself an oath:
I promised my uneasy mind that I will tame the storm,
That I will make it mine for both –
The calmness of the ocean and my stricken form.
But therefore, I found myself in loss of actions
In haste to catch it
I forgot how scary it could be
Alas, there are not enough distractions
That could be provided by the likes of me.
The ocean’s vast and fearful and no less,
But even more so are the darkened skies.
If only lighting was mine to possess,
I would undoubtedly pierce your cloudy eyes.
I want to see them lighting up
I want to see not only warmness, but also fire
Burning there, within their depths.
