Nature Of The Beast - Poem by Nicole D'Settemi

Body Mangled
Cranium crushed
Blood dripping
Legs and arms twitch
Agonizing wince
Exhausted yawn
Too much of life
This Wild Cat is done
Fur stained scarlet
No longer golden
She cries inaudibly,
With a slight twist of her neck
Claws lay limp
Teeth specked
With another wild cat's flesh
Lying dormant in those magnificent teeth
This time she was another wild one's feast

The hunt is over.

    Poetry is a great way to extract any poison from the past. It also has healing properties. You are slowly stepping out of the shadows into the light. The world is full of beauty. Don't dismiss it. Great writing! (Report)Reply
