NaPoWriMo PROMPT: Write a non-apology for the things you’ve stolen.

Not Sorry 

Remember when you saw her weeks ago? 
How smitten you were with those big brown eyes? 
You said, “I’ll bring her home,” and I said, “No!” 
That she’d be trouble and a pain besides. 

You brought her. Then you left her here with me. 
While you were gone away I saw those eyes. 
She made a mess and thought the food was free 
Then cuddled up and wooed me with her sighs. 

One afternoon we went out for a walk 
She has that smile. How could I tell her no? 
I told myself that all we’d do was talk. 
I didn’t realize how far we’d go. 

Your dog is my dog. You can see it’s true. 
Not sorry that she loves me more than you.
