the cat’s meow
the cat meows because he misses home
but who doesn’t?
whatever keeps you sane
for me, I listen
the cat, he speaks to me
this is not his home
this is not my home
what makes a place a home?
is it comfort? is it love? is it family?
the cat longs to go outside
to the other side of that door
I understand because we both feel more at home there
the other side of that door
there I look up and see stars instead of
there I feel cold air instead of
there I listen to the rustling of leaves instead of
the cat’s meow.
