YOUR LOVE IS LIKE A PUPPY DOG – a poem

Love makes you daft. It brings out the silliness. It gambols and prances in a world of its own. Love is lost in ecstasy and delight. Love is discovery. Love is insulating into a bubble that cuts you off from everything else.

Love usually changes and comes back to bite you.

YOUR LOVE IS LIKE A PUPPY DOG

 

Your love follows me home and pounces upon me in my sleep.

It’s so full of excitement it’s nose quivers

It has big soft eyes a cold wet snout.

It chews my slippers

And has never apologised once.

 

Your love has a tail that wags so hard that it’s eyes jiggle in its head

It constantly demands attention

And licks my face as if it were an ice-cream cone.

 

I’d put it on a lead and train it

But it’s too young and boisterous to restrain;

So it follows me around all day

Panting on my breakfast and drooling in my soup

 

It has a cuddly fluffy coat and ridiculous floppy ears.

We gambol in the park.

I throw sticks to it

And it bounds and lollops delightedly,

Unexpectedly jumping up to clumsily crush my most sensitive areas

 

Your love is like a puppy dog

Lapping up my tea.

I am waiting for it to use its fangs on me
