You lie in wait for your chance to leap
Springing your weight off coiled legs
I watch as you jump into the air so high
And drift towards the center of the sky
And float into a slow motioned decent
Wings folding back as your claws come out
I'm still watching as you fall like lighting
Fast not even time to move or shout
Just as suddenly with pretentious aim
Adrenaline and action bulging in your veins
Held back only for a moment in time
Before releasing wildly like flames
Turning blindly and out of control
With such ferocity for survival you strike
Leaving only a pile of fur and bones
