#Poetry: Dark Cavity #MPBooks

Cat in snow hole

After seeing the daily prompt word was Cavity, I decided to search for the word ‘cavity’ on The above picture was part of the search results and the following poem came about from my mind. But I have to warn you it’s not a happy one and may upset some people, though it’s an issue close to my heart so I felt it needed to be voiced. ❤

Dark Cavity

Dark and cold, you’ll find me there,
Not that I think you’d easily care.
Left me to be, without a home,
“Free” you’d say, to live and roam.
Didn’t agree to keep safe and well,
Instead you felt the need to sell.
Promised others a loving start,
But what you did was not of heart.
Let me experience warmth and love,
As cuddled mine, as white as dove.
Blinded this way, I didn’t see,
All your thoughts were of a fee.
Couldn’t see coming, how you would take,
What only mattered, my heart you’d break.
You wanted more, you pushed and pressed,
I didn’t agree, became your pest.
Fought against, until you’d let go,
But instead you decided better to throw.
Tossed and turned, made me feel sick,
In the darkness, a slab of brick.
Bruised, in pain but worse was still,
The sound, darkness, water, chill.
Only freed by saving grace,
Didn’t stay to watch you chase.
Fled until I reached the goal,
Found that spot, that very hole.
Dark and cold, you’ll find me there,
Not that I think you’d ever care.

  1. I’m sorry you haven’t had many views, Cat. I’ve not had the time to be on-line much in the last few days and am now trying to catch up. This is indeed a dark poem, but well written and it is a subject that needs to be spoken about. xx
