Slow Erosion

Each tear
each hurt
each neglection
add too many
barricading
no longer do I wonder
time is mine own
apparent
you have made
lack of desire
to be with
unless
on terms you dictate.
Times you demand
without thought
consideration
gentle soul
caring heart
flayed
grated
blown
dust motes
dance through air
only beauty
coming from
what once was
golden dreams…..
love
lasting.
Fool I was.
Kiss good bye…..
the best
you could have had
ever would have had
watch my ass
see the finger
take a hike
get out of my life
and don’t let the door
hit ya on the way out.

And than there was One

Today was the day.
My friend came and picked up two of the kittens. Blackie and Itty Bitty.
I cried. I am not going to lie. I love animals and wish that I could keep them all. However not able to do so.
Loki will be remaining with us. Thomas keeps trying to bite him or rather dominate him and Loki is having none of that. Thomas keeps trying to bite his throat to get him to submit and Loki keeps fighting him off. And Thomas is so fat the fact that he is being defeated by such a little guy is kind of funny.
I know the other two are going to a great home. I will get pictures and updates.
But my heart hurt a little when I said goodbye.
