Cat (food) Can

A Poem By Madeline // 6/5/2013

She scooped the cat food from the can
And told him of her love
He cooed to her in pleasant mew
A feline morning dove

She leaned against the countertop
Hip-checked stale air away
And cast her eyes to the can in her hand
Scared of what he’d say

His reply came nigh like he’d promised
A gentleman true-to-word
She held her hand over her heart
A duly chastised girl

Because breaking — it was breaking
Right there beneath her hand
The beats ceased with her breathing
Betrayed by love’s cold hand

She held the note steadfast and hard
Thumbprints on the page
And snatching at the can of food
She sealed his meal away

LOL!

This is adorable, it's a little confusing... and I'm trying to figure out some of the lines, but it's fun and free!
Love it ;)
