An Unwanted Visitor
Tiny ball of fur
With eyes cerulean blue
Fuzzy packaging, sharp claws.
Mewling softly and forever hungry.
Stumbling as you learnt to walk
Snuggling against my cheek; in my neck.
Curling up on my chest and in my lap,
Crawling up on my shirt and on my giant dogs.
Tiny sandpaper licks on my chin;
Sucking my fingers when going to sleep,
Tickling; warm, heartening
Whiskers tickling my nose.
Little did I know that you were lent to me
By God only for a short while
To love while you lived and
Mourn when you died.
Little did I know that the dark angles
Will visit while you slept
Creeping up on you slowly
Snuff out the life suffocating you.
As you gasped for air;
Taking in your last breath
Cocooned in my palms
Death visited my house yet again.
All I’m left with is a
Full panoply of your memories
Trapped in my camera
As I mourn your loss.
