I hope the rain stops soon-
I want to see the sunshine again.
I want to see my fur flowing in the wind.
I want to see the light in your eyes-
The sun filled days when I still could purr.
I don’t want to hide
It’s been too long…I’ve been hiding behind these four walls.
I’m sick of shelter- I want to roam free-
To explore a new path.
I live in fear with every breath I take-
You stand six feet away-
I’m afraid of you now.
My dreams are on hold.
I don’t dare venture out-
Out from this shallow hole of fear and uncertainty-
Yet, I ache for a new day.
Where 2020 fades like a lost memory.
2020-you have filled my heart with so much rain.
I have no where to go.
No one to see.
You say I can’t move-
You say I can’t breathe-
But I am still here
Looking you in the eyes
And, never again will I be bullied by your threats and your arrogance.
2020- I walk alone.
How dare you take away everything I’ve known.
Everyone I’ve held dear.
This rain carries the purge-
Of the good, and the bad
The lost and the found
But deep inside – I just hide..in hopes, it will wear itself out.
So… I can slip by.
And, go my own way.
2020- I am just a cat.
I have a right to be a cat.
Why do you insist on taking away my purr?
