Curious Kitten

Inquisitive, needy, desperate That's me Always mewling at your doorstep Follow closely at your heels So You could never once think of leaving Me behind I disgust myself It's too late to shake me Now; You've already fed me Though I'm ashamed, I never hesitate To beg you still for more I'm Famished otherwise, and even then, I've drawn this path too Many times It's too late to shake me Now; You're already mine And the guilt settles in Like Amber leaves clog up your gutters And the truth, it burns at Me Like the fire churns the wood Laid at your hearth Discount my pelt of night and Jealous, emerald eyes Take them not for evil, but for A form of love in disguise Take me instead to be your cherished Pet Love me as if I were your own, as If I really belonged with you Humor me, for once, when I tell you That I love you When I bite my own tongue, release it Give me the words that I could say Teach me how to keep you, even as You write me off and make me Say goodbye Or better yet, surprise me by Asking me to stay Let me believe in love by telling Me that this is somehow Irrevocably okay
