From Where I Am Sitting

From Where I Am Sitting

Sitting here
waiting for that one look
Watching you,
adoring you
I am an open book
 
Acknowledgment
of my existence
Is that too much
to expect?
If only you knew
There is no resistance
 
I know you are busy
and your time is limited
But I beg for you to linger
a little longer with me
I will stay riveted
 
I have the perfect anecdote
if you give me a little time
I will show, but
I need your full attention
Just stay and be mine
 
I missed you today
while you were away
I was sad and lonely
Without you I grieved
Hoping everything was okay
 
My love for you is finite
You are all I want and need
I know you love me too, but
forgetting sometimes I am your dog
and I’m a different breed

National Poetry Writing Month
Day 17 - NaPoWriMo

Today, I’d like you to challenge you to write a poem that similarly
presents a scene from an unusual point of view. Perhaps you could
write a poem that presents Sir Isaac Newton’s discovery from the
perspective of the apple. Or the shootout at the OK Corral from the
viewpoint of a passing vulture. Or maybe it could be something as
everyday as a rainstorm, as experienced by a raindrop.

      Aww, thanks. I was watching the way my dog was looking at me today and I could imagine what she was thinking 🙂💕 She could put anyone on a guilt trip with those big puppy dog eyes!
