Mouse & Cat

This game of cat and mouse

has carried on far too long

and just when I think I am the cat,

you attack and prove me wrong.

I have been patiently waiting,

crouched and ready to pounce,

and I gave you more than I wanted

so that my very being, you denounce.

It’s not even a problem, being the mouse

if that’s the sacrifice I must make,

but knowing you are still a cat

is what makes my heart truly ache.
