Edge of darkness
Copyright June 2nd, 2013
Out there on the edge of the darkness
Eyes glowing greenly back at me.
I hear the soft stealthy tread
of padded feet as the creature advances.
Its green glowing eyes look menacing
What is it, a wolf, bear, cougar?
Fear goes through me and a chill goes
down my back, I feel frightened at the unknown
I hold my breath in trepidation
Should I turn and run, or go inside the house?
Suddenly Its fur brushes against my ankles
and I hear the deep rumbling purr of contentment.
It is only my kitty Cheetoh, Who is seeking
A pat, a pet and a cuddle and some love.
