fight or flight

on zephyr wings,
your scent was carried,
dangerous and spiked,
with heat and need,
cross forest thick,
cross river deep,

it told of your approach,
cat-like,
on stealthy feet,
with muscled thighs,
and sharpened teeth,
with palpable hunger-lust.

and though my senses,
bade me take wing,
in order to survive,
instead
i turned,
in the direction of your approach,
to face the force,
and feel the brunt of your attack,
in order to live.

what life is this to lead,
if we should not,
at one time,
be the object,
of such deadly hunger?

what life is this to lead,
if at one time,
we cannot feel the claws catching,
the teeth ripping,
and welcome the need to be...
consumed?
