As the World Sleeps


She is awake and waiting,
for a delicious treat to satiate her
hungry thoughts and empty stomach.

She waits by the shadows,
free flowing hair melting with the night,
only cat’s eyes seen peering at the dark.

Waiting wiith stillness
and never ending silence,
preys pass by without noticing.

A finger’s breadth from her,
they don’t know why they are scared,
until they look up and see,
death staring down at them.
