The Cat Purrs - Poem by R. Ariffin

The cat purrs for mercy and compassion
That doesn’t leave much of impression
The crows bask gloriously into the night
Starless and inept, such a depressing sight
The wolf howls in melodious melancholy
Begging to the moon to set it free
The midnight breeze dances in cold emotion
Filling the mind with heatless sensation
I stand and watch you pass me by
Unable to wave and say goodbye
