Becoming a Cat


Her eyes are portals to the soul
With tempered hues as dark as coal
She’ll drag you in and eat you whole
She’s in control, she’s in control

With prudence reaching deep within
The spell she casts will soon begin
She preys upon a heart that’s thin
And reaches in – and reaches in

She takes the essence that is you
And molds it to a shape that’s new
And deep inside you know it’s true
You always knew, you always knew

A shift of shape will soon occur
And you’ll become a part of her
The past has now become a blur
I feel your purr, I feel your purr

Spring, the sweet spring, is the year's pleasant king,
Then blooms each thing, then maids dance in a ring,
Cold doth not sting, the pretty birds do sing:
