You kicked me out, all of a sudden one day. Left me defenceless. Hurt, it caused me tremendous. Left on the road, abandoned. Wasn't the physical state that had me saddened. You were my family. You took your responsibility casually. You made me a promise. And now, I know you were dishonest. You left me here out in the cold. Played with me, but now I'm just too old. To you I was just a pet, a dog. One you'd selected from a catalog. But I was always there. Your every achievement to share. I'm a dog so I just jump and bark. But, you were my owner, my monarch. I felt sad when you were sad. Didn't know how to console you for the bad. You didn't notice. But I always had you on focus. And now you left me out alone. To growl in isolation and moan. Intelligent humans are too complicated. Unlike us dogs, their egos are so inflated. Always trying to control. Even when they take you for a stroll. On these lonely streets I struggled. With no master to cuddle. But someday you'll think of your dog. When you need a furry paw to cope from the slog. Once upon a time, called by name. An abandoned stray, one and the same. I was your dog. Young, we'd go out while you'd jog. To you I was just a pet, a dog. One you'd selected from a catalog. Left on the road, abandoned. Wasn't the physical state that had me saddened. -RUELHA www.ruelha.com © Copyright Protected. All Rights Reserved.
