Here Kitty, Kitty...

Here Kitty, Kitty...

A Poem by A.j. Dru

Poem I wrote a long while back. Just found it and thought I'd share.


Here Kitty, Kitty...

By AJ Dru


Oh my, oh my,

Do I truly spy

the tiniest of tiny,

little white lies?

Simple omission of

The Truth.


Click, click, click--

The endless tick--

Tock of the goddam clock

As time slips

So selfishly away.


Me, in my cloudy room,

Alone with my cigarettes

And depressing thoughts, regrets.

I could scream, and

I could shout.

But never quite loud enough...


Looking back alwasy hurts,

Like a broken neck.

Friends lost, all but a few.

Enought f**k-ups to fillthe shelves

Of a dozen silent libraries.

Lies and apologies galore...


If somewhere out there,

In the cosmos of space,

God sits watching from behind

A bowl of buttered popcorn,

I'm sure He's laughed and cried

And even covered His eyes at times...

But, I fear I disappoint.


For I always hold true to what I am,

And that is my Tragedy--

In lieu of comfortable ignorance,

I opt to poke my nose

And prove once again that

Curiosity killed the Cat.

Love the structure of the poem, and the idea seems to capture the regret and depression...anyway great job, it is truly something "fresh"

starts out with a great flow and rhythm , your rhyme scheme was pretty much gone after the third stanza leaving the reader wanting for more, great starting idea, looks like you have some potential for an excellent writer you just need to polish your style a little to remain more consistent.
