She was a lovely woman

when she was very young

her hair was soft and healthy

words quickly bounced off her tongue


Her lips were red as roses

her skin as fair as the rule of a good king

her shape was smooth and lively

her heart’s good showed in her being


But now that she has grown older

her heart is the color jade

her words cut and are more bitter

her face kept in the shade


She trusts no one anymore

and lives a lonely life

once she was young and married

once she was a happy wife


but the years went by

her husband died

her kids left and never came back


Everyone she ever helped

when she needed them,

turned their back


but there is something that she does love

a little creature, small in size

and when she calls out his name

he comes and stares into her eyes


this creature is her helper

a little friend that once came

and once he was in her life

he never left again


This creature is a black soul

his horns a twisted into claws

he keeps his size small

so that she would not fret at all


so this beautiful soul of a woman

grown bitter with the years

has no clue that her friend is a demon

as a cat he does appear


She is the guarded woman

and never again will be alone

for her and her demon cat make quite a happy home.
