Mirror Cat

Confused cat
Struggling,
Scrambles to the the bed.
Faltering feet fail to find firmness
Mirroring me
Fearfully
Stepping out
Sinking slowly
Caught in a mire of memory.

Sitting on the bed watching the cat fall off the end as she tries to climb up while I sit reading other people’s poems and relive my sadness mingled with their own emotions, sparked by words and images with which I am so familiar.
