Cats Only Want Food

Cats Only Want Food

The darkness is where you were born to thrive—

Wet paws stained red, but not from the need to survive.

Instead, you are motivated by the shielded shades of night.


As I lie in bed my senses begin to morph from

The sound of your feet creeping through the door—

Is that your black silhouette that’s deeper than the dark?


I feel your presence begin to warm my toes, but

Your distracted nature doesn’t care about easing my mind

For you will always make decisions with your ravenous eyes.


You never truly know the ones you live with—

Her presence is known only by an

Empty food dish each morning.
