The Black Cat (E.A.P. Inspired) - Poem by Ryan Joseph Holder

The gentleman
No longer exists
What I was once known as
Now seems to desist
Pluto, my companion
Truly, my dearest friend
Had suffered such pain
And I caused its end
The creature I had loved
And held above my wife
In an act of drunken violence
I sadly took his life
For he already feared me
Due to the gouging of his eye
Which I am responsible for
Due to my wine drowned night
But not long after
My sickened shame
Had I lost everything
In the pitiless flames
All was gone
Within, and yet
Left with nothing but
Pluto's Silhouette
Not too soon after
My villa's demise
Had another cat
Entered my life
Pluto's double
Except for one detail
Against my request
He had white hair
Scarcely on his breast
But I was not Amorous
Towards this creature
I hated him greatly
And every bit of his features
His love for me
Annoyed me immensely
He constantly followed me
And I loathed him intensely
Till one day I raised
An Axe and brought it down
But my poor wife
Interrupted my bounds
I sadly killed her
And placed her in the walls
But the menacing creature
was the cause of my fall
