I absolutely love the sound of my kitties running about the house, dashing after various toys, playing with one another, and meowing all the while. Those are such wonderful noises, ones that always brighten my day and make life better. This is a bit of a sad story, but I didn't realize how much I'd miss those noises until my family and I lost Romeo, our senior cat of 17 years.
This endless cycle Pleading that others listen Cries echo unheard
Desolate silence Echoes in empty confines Of an unknown space
Within my mind, A dense shroud of fog Obscures an unthinkable reality
