pussy cat

i want a wonder woman
wake me every morning with a kiss of death
kiss me like a lion
a tigress whose claws will grab hold of my spirit
a woman who wears her onyx fur coat with utmost pride
whose mind embodies a black panther
my kitty must have a big heart
kind enough to forget the sorrows that led her to me
agile enough to land on her feet
lick her paws
our love be blessed with nine lives
she can be lithe like a cheetah
or heavy like a leopard
as long as i feel her canines bite into my soul
she must never change her spots
hold me tight like prey
