11th January ~ a stone for the river

our cat died last night

new sadness
sits heavy on my chest
and twists my stomach into queasiness

I don’t want to retreat into words
they are no comfort

silence is better
and cuddles offered by a child
who hasn’t learned to be afraid of emotion

I'm sorry your lovely kitty died. Beautiful boy. Few words from me. Only love.
