Cassie

entry picture
 
Cassie came to me
damaged and afraid
“just let me hide in this corner”
it was like she prayed
“I’ll be fine if left alone
with food and water
to survive”
I’m not sure she wanted
to even be alive
 
I forced my love on her
for I wouldn’t settle for this
forced gentle caresses
warm hugs and a kiss
though I knew
she couldn’t be expected
to understand any of this
 
she resisted
skeptical
confused
distrusting
 
I insisted
patient
understanding
determined
 
day after day
I fought the war to win her heart
night after night
I seemed to be losing the battle
waiting for love to start
 
until
 
one night I felt
her tiny, precious head
nestled against mine
curled up in my bed
her fur so soft and fine
heard her quiet, contented sigh
and that was when I knew
 
Cassie was finally mine

This has warmth and charm, great images in clear, bright language, leaving the reader to 'just enjoy' the story.
