Black Cat

a piece of night cut from the dark
she watches each and every move
and sits aloof so far apart
from the world, until she soothes
my tired thoughts with just a glance
her green eyes holding fix on mine
and leads my thoughts a merry dance
with her wiles and ways feline
she is both queen and courtesan
her nature fierce and fair
she knows me more than any can
and less than any careā€¦
