Did intrigue kill the cat too?

Is intrigue like
Is the cat taken
to slaughter
as she paws
at tender thoughts?
Will she be hung
drawn and
for the mouse
that wasn’t

Perhaps intrigue
Is gentler,
has an essence of
English rose
Whimsical fairies
dancing between
daffodil toes
in the mornings
sea mist.. that
kisses blush

But what if she be
the cat
of death that calls
through peeking eyes
of intrigue and
turquoise skies
as noose tightens
nine lives
lightened as
blood smears axe
as curiosity attacks…

So then if curiosity
be’s not the fate
of ole girl Ginger
as she paws through
the curse of black
mist that licks
at her mind
in the devils light
then, it can only be…

the kiss of white
mist, penetrating night
on thoughts of days
long lingered
whilst curiosity
may have
killed the cat..
stirs her
primal call
from slumber

Welcome to my blog! Here you will find different forms of creative writing, lots of swearing, erotic poetry, random thoughts, beautiful imagery, but most of all you will find a version of truth. My truth, this is the way that I see the world. However, all of my work is a form of creative writing, a combination of truth and fiction. I write to express my creativity, not my needs!
