Touched

by Cat Mercer

Kitty had a lighter touch
much stronger than you and me
forgotten in a sea of sock people
her mind screaming silently
she sat up sad
strangely glad
and said, ‘This is how it’s got to be.’

Taking in her fate
Locked up without the key
She said, ‘All of my time is lost
and I can’t count the cost to me’
With that quote
She caught the boat
And sailed away to watch a dream

Cat Mercer is from Merseyside. She eats, writes and breathes a bit in between.
