Poems about Animals

Got my heart on lockdown, No possibility of parole. This caffeinated affection Continuously takes its toll.
January...jam, damn so much to fit in. How am I supposed to keep up with school and make new friends?
I am from laughter, joyfulness, and a caring family, from my very first furry friend on Christmas morning,
By the time i'm finished reading                                                           
If I were a cat, how would others see me? If I was a cat with wings,
I am aware of the struggle, although I am a bystander. Life goes past me, no bumps or walls. No one stops to notice.
Pointed ears perked, eyes strained to see who appoaches, a whimper escapes my throat.
I've seen through my eyes, A world laid out before me. A world that's experienced a year of growth,
I don't want to see another day. Wishing I was dead. To disappear. To cry my eyes out all day long.
