You said you loved me
for the galaxies in my mind,
I told you that I was still growing.
You left because you couldn’t
handle all the pressure
I held in there,
I told you, but darling, that’s
how stars are born.
I’m trying hard to live by Cat Principles.
1- I am glorious above all things
2- Eat when hungry, sleep when sleepy, play when bored
3- Affection is given and received on my terms and only mine
4- Show displeasure clearly.
6- Demand the things you want. If they aren’t given, demand them again, but louder this time.
7- If you are touched when you don’t want to be, say so. If they continue to touch you, make them bleed.
You took off my clothes
and as I stood in your light,
it was as if we had already met;
you touched me as though
my body were a world map
and you knew every language.
And this is our love,
it’s a strange melody;
an odd sensation
of knowing again, a love
we must have traveled together before.
