Dispatches from the wilds of Poetania – Secret Kisses, Stolen Heart

Be honest now,
I know it’s been a while,
but tell me,
that sticky-fingered little boy,
he broke your heart,
didn’t he?

So you act all fire & bluster,
and stomp,
and scowl,
and rage and howl,
but it isn’t what he did,
and it isn’t what he said,
that’s set you all in such a rage.

No no, come now,
it’ll be ok,
take a breath,
I know, it takes courage to say,
that when he pulled his fingers away,
was when the leaks ‘came cracks,
and the feeble dike upon your heart
slowly started breaking apart.

And so you set your teeth, so sharp,
as bare as your broken heart,
and scratch,
and hiss,
and glare and growl,
but we all know this isn’t you,
and this isn’t what you mean to do,
just a frightened little kitten,
trying so hard to be brave.
