True Love

For the first time in my life, I find myself in love.

Yes, last night I met "The One".

It was such a life-altering event that I felt inspired to put my feelings into verse.

You have been warned.........

           Ode To The Cat In The Window

Last night I saw you,
While sitting on the sill.
Staring through the window,
Causing my heart to still.

A feline so sleek and lovely,
A form so full of grace.
Markings aesthetically pleasing,
A perfectly perfect face.

Your eyes are bright and glowing,
belying a brilliant brain.
I feel if I can't have you,
I will surely go insane.

Your coat is so gorgeous,
Like the finest Chinese silk.
I could drink in your whole being,
Like a saucer of sweetest milk.

Your presence lightens my heart,
It brightens the darkest day.
It dispels all the mists,
It chases away the gray.

Now I understand Valentine's Day!
How could I have been so dense?
All that mooshy, lovey stuff
Is finally making sense!

Your sly grin and knowing look
Has melted my icy heart.
This chance encounter in the night
Has given me a fresh start!

 But alas, I am mistaken.
A victim of self-deception.
The wondrous vision in the window
Is simply my own reflection.

Happy Valentine's Day to all my minions!


  1. Ah, true love is such a wondrous thing.
    Happy Valentine's Day to you too ComMonster Cujo!

  2. Funny, how I thought that may be how the poem would end. Happy Valentine's Day Cujo!

  3. Well Cujo, the DO say that it's very important to love oneself. You're on the right track, for sure.
