Indifference?

Indifferent most of the time, often at rest.
But, always with one eye open.
Coiled, ready to spring, to attack.
Claws and teeth bare, green eyes flash.
And she begins to stalk, never wavers
then suddenly, she pounces.
Claws like razors, slice, dig, break the skin
of my resistance. Injecting the germs of doubt, loathing, and fear.
Which begin to fester, until the balm
of your love once more heals the scar.

You had me tail and all with this one. Very, very nicely done. I particularly like the line "Injecting the germs of doubt, loathing, and fear."
