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