A slight thud
as I shut my door.
of paws coming toward me.
A strangled small meow
of a grey and white kitten
looking up at me with longing eyes
head tilted a little to the left.
Another mew of the constant loud meowing
that seems to follow me everywhere
even behind closed doors.
The sound of clicking
as I grit my teeth in irritation.
A crick in my neck
as I look down at Gizmo.
A small smile stretches my lips
as I reach down scooping up
the now vibrating purring kitten.
A small creak
of an old couch
as I sink in
with small Gizmo on my chest.
A light plop
as his tiny fuzzy head lays on my chest.
A soft sound
of purring and petting
fill the otherwise silent room.
All stress and anxiety vanish
as I lay there with the one thing
that can make me happy
no matter what.
