Accidentally (2002)
mikeymell

By mikeymell

I sit down on the couch and hear

a crashing sound rush in from outside.

As I open the door,

a shadow slides behind the table, hiding.

On the floor, only a broken

shell remains of a once proud creature,

now limp and weak.


From behind the table,

the darkness shows itself

and hesitantly approaches me.

As I look into its eyes, the fear of

reprisal becomes apparent within it.


I sense an understanding between us,

this cat and I.

It glides toward the broken pot

and sniffs for signs of life.

As it looks back up at me,

its eyes open scared and wide,

and it rushes to its cage inside,

waiting for forgiveness while I sweep.
