Resident's Absence

Resident's Absence
9 November 2012

The place seems empty without you
And the kitties miss you, too. Mew.
Something's missing when you're gone
Like an animating spirit's withdrawn.
Car and street noises are amplified
And the house creaking is personified.
Tic-tock echoing marks the passing of time.
When the wind-up clock begins to chime,
The sounds have a hollow reverberation,
An aberration lasting for the duration
Of your absence and separation.
I just don't know exactly what changes,
But when you come home everything rearranges.
