The Cat and The Rabbit

Her cautious and timid nature
finds it hard to cope with
his frequently frivolous,
facetious and flippant comments

She is hesitant to retaliate
instead
she nervously hides her fear
acts out in a skittish way
especially at the dinner table
clumsy, she is the one to blame

Nap time is when she eases up
grazing in the kitchen all afternoon
while he lounges in the sun in deep sleep

Evening comes
He is full of energy again
and ready to pounce on her
There is no escape
from dusk to dawn
Maybe
that's how she gets her red eyes

Redeem

kitty tangled in yarn
no longer playful

fish trapped in net
no way home

head walked into spider web
no escape horror

chest tied with knots
no relief channel

only your smile
warrants reprieve
releases me from
nuisance
nightmare
torment
fear

We got a thing

The first time I saw you

I loved you… I was sweet to you

Everytime I see you

My mouth curves up to a moon, my eyes to a straight line

You can be naughty… you can be vicious… you can be cold shoulders to me

We got a thing between us my beloved

We love and affectionate to only one

Loyal, intimate and eternal

We look at each other, rub our noses

Smitten… gooey… heavenly
