Forgotten & Alone [MLM]

Howling wolf

I was a loyal friend,

Yet you betrayed me again.

You make a habit of lying,

While I wait out here crying.

What’s your excuse this time?

Don’t just hand me a line–

Cuz I’ve got your number,

And I ain’t gettin’ younger.

I hear laughter from your room;

Are you on that damn Zoom?

My food bowl is empty…

Don’t you forget about me!

  2. I bet that many cats think that they are being forgotten when they see that their food bowls are empty. Nice poetry Paula.

  5. This is a wonderful poem. Could be a woman. could be a child, but at last we find is a pet. And this makes the words that have come before even more true!
