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?
