Never Coming Back

What did I do?

Was it something wrong?

Is this my punishment?

What’s taking so long?


I noticed a while back,

You pushed me away,

You became more distant,

With each passing day.


I tried to cheer you up,

I brought you my bone,

But you threw it and spoke,

With a loud angry tone.


I didn’t understand,

I wanted some love,

But you pushed me to the floor,

With a violent shove.


Then one day you left,

I lay with my toy,

Wishing you’d come back,

To call me ‘Good Boy’.


I was getting so hungry,

My stomach growled,

But nobody heard me,

No matter how much I howled.


I walked through the house,

Eating what I could find,

Most things were gone,

But I was left behind.


Many days passed,

So many I lost track,

The realisation hit me,

You’re never coming back.

The End
