The Cat's Meow

A Poem by alice
"

Don't let me sleep...

"
Don't let me sleep...
        please...
The pain is intense...
        I'm afraid...
Don't let me sleep...
        don't leave me...
Please...please...
            I'm afraid...
Don't go...
           ...it hurts...
                 ...no, sleep...

The vet killed my cat. Irony at it's finest.

your cat just died i'm not surprised you can't sleep. it sounds like it comes from a person who have night terrors and dreads falling asleep. great poem.
