The Curious Feline (Writing as Curiosity)

Curiosity will be the death of her.

It will surely kill the inquiring feline.

The truth will resign to strangle her—

leaving her hung by a tiny noose.

Such curiosity will be rewarded

with the intolerable truth.

I invite her into my mind’s deceit.

My diary is so heavy—

a ton and a half of excess baggage.

I ponder if she can muster even an inkling

of an understanding of real feelings.

Can she fathom my twenty-year-old

résumé of torment?

If so, then I invite her to read forward—

to prance through my journal of heartbreak.
