Love and the Night (Cats and Corners)

When all that is left is the eye
And the meaningless soul of day
When the fleeting echo of light
Is a downward spiral too late

I follow the cats and the souls
Around the corners of life
And into the throat of the night
Where only the loveless play

For mine is a shifting eye
And a doubtful heart of late
With wearying feet and holes
In pockets, where feelings lay

Yours is a hand I could hold
Could cling to, death-grip white
To drag us both down and sleep within
The effortless throat of night

But the cats and the corners call
I can answer with burning eyes
So sleep on, love, the night unfolds;
Your quickening breath, the prize.
