Cat Fight

Cat Fight short poem

Monitoring for movement, scanning expectantly for signs.
Electric eyes, barely blinking.
Knowing the prey and her hiding places.
Prowling the night, thoughts blacker than the surrounding darkness.

Staccato stalking, sleek and streamlined, she smells the air.
Nervous nose, almost aquiver.
Senses tingling in anticipation, ready for certain combat.
Tracking the scent, single-minded in pursuit.

Lissom and languid, listening for active quarry.
Ears erect, straining sounds.
Auditory alertness, acoustically aware.
Zoning in with obsessive and voracious intent.

Locating the enemy, and fuelled to frenzy,
The charge is swift as a lightening thrust.
Claws clashing, stilettos stabbing.
Wildcats wailing with foul-mouthed fury.

No dignity, no elegance.
Just blood and tears and harpy hairdos.
Exhaustion ensues, combatants collapse.
Pride punished, lesson learned?

The Good Fight

The Good Fight short poem

Into the bowels of my being I go, searching for who I am. Far out into the

Fight

Fight short poem

Sometimes you realise you’re stronger than you thought, In hindsight you can surely see, The person that you are and all but had forgot, Lost sight of the person you could be. No matter in life whatever dragged you down,
