Where my heart is aglow with new love

As I walked along the beach in solitude

A sun shower surrounded me

I marveled at the beauty of nature

Your past does not define you

But shaped the person you are today

for Cat...

 

She drifts in a realm of darkness

Engulfed by visions from the past

Desperate to quiet her mind

Exhausted yet unable to sleep

Exquisite writing has captivated my senses

Enticing and arousing every essence of my existence

A fortress by the beach I shall build

I have a secret...
My Mama’s a witch!

Just watch her nose twitch.

'twas the day before Christmas

The sun was brightly shining

The rooster was crowing

And Molly was barking.

'twas just before Christmas

And all through the house

The family had sore throats

All quiet as a mouse

Molly the little Cavoodle,

Had a rather funny guise,

And if you ever saw it,

You would wonder why she tries.

The sun did not shine.

It was too wet to play.

Molly and Rosie were sad

All this wet, wet, wet day.

Peering from within the bars,

Piercing eyes; both cold and cruel.

Shadows dance from side to side,

Waiting for the fatal duel.
