It was all fun and games

until I saw that look in your eye

and I knew without a doubt

in a moment I could die.

Your beauty in that fluffy fur

is a disguise you wear so well

since just one false move

and in a second I am in hell.

Beneath the fluffy exterior

comes the sharpened blade

that slices through my finger

a gaping wound is made.

And soon the blood is flowing

with not an end in sight

and I know that I am lucky

you’ve spared my life tonight.

Then, as if nothing had changed

you come back expecting love;

of course I give it freely,

but maybe this time with a glove.
