Its eyes glistens in desperation
Our pupils meet
I break away the eye contact and look down at my last piece of bread
I walk down the path leading me to where my blanket awaits
I stop in my tracks
A sudden touch of softness and fur?
Its a she
I nod in approval
she purrs in response
I twirl in the sunshine
and run up the steps
There she is again
My mum shoos her away
Tears sparkling like stars, traveling down my cheeks
I walk with a paper determining my future in a day
I kneel down and softly pat her head
"I hope it goes well with me." I say.
I run out the door to enter the outside world
There she was, as if waiting for me all along.
No response and she walks away
Where does she go?
Not today, these dark heavy clouds not going to drench me today
I run as fast as I could to open the door
The light is absent but her eyes speaks of her presence
"What you doing here again, you like me already?"
I hear a chuckle
This time I look straight into her eyes
Searching for something I am not sure of
I clutch the hem of my skirt so tightly
I forgot to breathe
It has always been me and mum
I stand and turn around
The light is absent but his eyes speaks of his presence
