Predator In The House

Updated on April 15, 2013

While the Home mistress deftly slept

Through the kitchen the intruder crept

A litter box placed against the wall

Said no guard dog would he befall

Across the hall without a sound

In the living room he moved around

A TV, jewels and video machine?

No interest to him did they bring

His interest lied with what’s upstairs,

With smooth soft skin and silky hair

Deftly he moved up the stairs

Ever so quietly he moved with care

Up the stairs and down the hall

No sound was heard, no sound at all

The bathroom light filled the corridor

And shown ahead the bedroom door

Like a shadow moving in the night

His pray now lay with in his sight

She did not see him standing there

He move in and sniffed her auburn hair

Then he touched her skin and she awoke

She turned in fright and then she spoke

You scarred the crap right out of me

Stupid cat, its outside you'll be©

      Suspenseful and with a great twist at the end. I could never think of something like mind simply doesn't work that way. Impressive.

      Wow. What a poem. I was so enthralled that when i got to the last line i had to go back and read it again. It could easily have been the real thing, all the while reading i was thinking of all those little children that have been stolen in the night. Good job. Well done.

      A poem with a twist! When I first read the poem I felt like I was in a scary movie. You have a excellent poem and great writing skills. Write more! I will be reading.
