lines of flame frame the void, silhouette so beautiful she haunts you, longing for your touch, but you are saving your heart only for her other side.
because she confuses you, she gives you no clue.
she’s just your self-denial.
she’s just the dark side of you, during those witching hours where you feel that light has left you alone, standing far away against you.
step closer, if only you’d look closer.
step down the whirling stairs, breathe in the damp air.
reach for the key to the dungeon where you have been locking her up.
And look closely, she’s just you.
and when you see tears of love in her eyes, they are your tears and they are your eyes.
Red and black tabby cat. But this one is really red, though sometimes is plum. She got me tongue-tied in awe. I thought there was nothing that I could do to stop her from walking out of the door, but I noticed that she had this long leash on and the other end got stuck under the door. Quickly I grabbed that end and slowly pulled her back into the house.
I followed her climbing the staircases and suddenly I found myself riding a soapbox plane of which the cat was the pilot. I couldn’t see where we went or how high we flew, but it wasn’t for long before we landed safely on the ground, back to the house.
She came to a room where I was listening to the Emperor talk about his relationship with God. I picked her up trying to sit her on my lap, but she hesitated. I felt her body stiffened. I stroked her slowly. With my hands, I could feel that she is also a goddess. I could see she also had a crescent moon on her forehead. When I felt this, she softened a bit, but still confused. Perhaps she hadn’t completely realized who she was and what our relation was. Then I remembered a trick:
“Isis…” I whispered the name slowly, twice, emphasizing on the letter ‘S’, in parseltongue.
And, not only the cat softened, surrendered, she curled up in submission to the name we both knew very well.
