Another mind

It happened again I couldn’t help myself The emotion was intoxicating As they screamed for help They begged for mercy And asked for a quick death But that robs me of the pleasure Of sustaining their last breath Carefully Surgically I strip them of hope And offer a brief window Gradually narrowing the scope Of the time they have Or so they may think To escape this living hell All while the deeper they sink Into what I view as a game Of simple cat and mouse And further lighting my face As it’s played in their house For weeks on end I stalk my prey Learn their habits And activities day to day The night before I win The game I do love to play I find myself in their living room Rearranging furniture to display How insignificant it is That we have things a certain way And how easily all that can be changed By a stranger the very next day
