Stick out that tougue and say to me,
Tell me cat what do you see?
I see a cat who is not afraid,
To let his life get in the way,
I see a cat who is weird and unqie,
A little cat that will sqeak,
sqeak in joy and happyness too,
It so reminds me of you,
SO stick out your touge,
And let your voice be heard,
That you too are free,
Free as a bird,

Crawling in my forlorn appearance
I hide my soul behind these tattered wings
Tattered and broken as they are
Plucked of light, stained in tears and blood.
In quiet despair upon the cold earth
Smeared in dirt I crouch upon my weary knees
And clutched timidly between my fingers
Rests one last jewel of Hope.
A single unblemished plume plucked
From the silver light of dawn
A feathered ray of light from beyond
To illuminate the void that has me bound.
This precious barb of silk
Once lost as I was and forgotten
Blazes now to immerse me in radiant bliss
To wash away the pain, draw me from the abyss.
So now I fade away…
My tender flesh removed
My shattered wings released
My inner light unsheathed… escapes.

"Oh my fucking God Tess, why the fuck, why'd you scare me like that?"
"I didn't scare you, I just didn't reply to your mortal terror." Tess looked at her like she was blaming him for nothing, like he had done nothing wrong. The sad thing to her was that he probably thought he hadn't.
"Tess, please never do anything like that to me again." Alahni pleaded
"I'm sorry Alahni, you know I didn't intend to scare you. I'm so sorry…" Tess opened his arms and beckoned Alahni in for a hug.
Alahni swam until the water was shallow enough for her to run, then ran into Tess's arms.
Tess wrapped her in a mighty hug and started to cry. He truly loved Alahni, he had no doubt about that…but did he love her?
Tess started weighing everything in his head. What it meant to be in love.
He got sick when she wasn't around him for an extended period of time, no matter what she did she was beautiful, she was the most beautiful person in the world to him. If she died, he died…
Tess decided he was in love with her.
