Curiosity and the Cat

I know what curiosity

Compelled the cat

It was his opposite

That took him aback

 

His soul mate

Of himself a mirror

And to himself

A grievous error

 

Love can be so sad

Unforgettable

And never to be had

But he relies on hope

 

Played at with paw

Inspected and espied

Unnoticed fatal flaw

Like a time bomb ticking

 

Love killed the cat
