my invisible cat

my invisible cat poem by steven james humphreys

I once loved a big cat

and one day he became my invisible cat

he no longer greets me

as I walk through my door

he no longer makes me smile

but my heart is still filled with love

that never leaves my inside.

thank God I have an imagination

and I can imagine holding, hugging and kissing

my big kitty and doggie who aren’t here anymore

but they both used to sleep all day on my bed

and I pretend they are both still there

when I go to sleep every night

and that’s the only thing I can do

to ease my pain and not cry myself to sleep.
