A Sonnet for Angel Kitty

26 Oct

So, I wanted to write down something about my dearly departed kitty without being overly dramatic. Well, that didn’t work out.  Iambic pentameter be damned.

A Sonnet for Angel Kitty

I took you into my home reluctantly,

Your shaggy unkempt hair, clump’d and matted.

You took me into your heart completely,

Once your hair was brushed, your belly fatted.

You became my little confidant, friend,

Taught me the true meaning of loyalty.

I felt calm in your presence and in the end

Never more in touch with humanity.

Forced to choose between you and cat demon,

Regret never displayed its ashen face.

You tried, willing your body to go on,

Holding steady till the final embrace.

Life, death, time and space will never sever.

You will be a part of me forever.
