Wounded Puma

Wounded puma
Limped through the forest
On her own
There’s no comfort
Others could provide
Only to hide
Alone
In a dark cave
To lick wounds
Growling at any who approach
No kind offering
Of a fresh kill
Could end frightful frustrations
Body not working right
Not functioning as it should
When will it end
Licking the pain
Massaging it away
In magical hopes it’ll end
Alone
