You come in so fast it takes my breath away

I want to scream into the abyss what a bitch you are

How your ugly presence isn’t welcome 

Instead I clench my teeth, hold my breath and give in to its power

I growl like a Lion. Leo the Lion to be exact because that’s what my daughter has named herself

Teeth gnashing, claws tearing its enemies to shreds.

Then I open my eyes again and softly tell her…

Yes, darling it’s time for dinner.
