Solitude and Some Peace, Please

He yearned for quiet and peace.
He craved for perfect silence.
He pictured himself in some valley,
Abandoned by all,
Resting against some old oak tree,
With no soul in sight.

It was not to be.
All he heard was rustling,
Movement all around the room.
No peace to savour,
Could not even read his lines.
He watched her moving round the room,
Now on the sofa,
Now looking out of the window.
No peace for him.

He look straight at her,
Eyes baleful and threatening.
“Move off, pest. 
Leave me in peace.”
She looked at me,
Eyes hurt and almost crying.
Turning around she left
And ran into my wife’s lap,
Wagging her tail behind.

PS:  This poem is not to be interpreted that I don't love dogs.  On the contrary......

    I know, I know they really know how to push our guilt buttons. But for all of that they give more than they get god bless 'em. Silence what is that? lol Poets are not allowed such luxuries. Good write.

    Sometimes we get irritated, with everything, well portrayed story, Victor :)

    Hi Victor, you portrayed a dog's feelings without having one. They can be just like humans, feeling rejection and seeking love, just the same! Well done with this one! :)

    A loving family dog surely runs to the other parent--a momentary disruption well described!

    Awww, poor puppy! I understand though, when you want peace, dogs can sometimes be an annoyance, but sometimes they can be awesome companions where they just sit there right next to you...like our little Yorkie, he is so good about just laying next to us whenever we just want some time to ourselves! Then he will be a perfect playmate when the time comes you are feeling better! What a fabulous poem my friend, you explained the situation quite perfectly, Great poetic moment, Awesome Work!!
