Animal Spirit


I wish there was a cat in me
Giving love like a huge favour
But there's just a little puppy
Begging for it

    Short and to the point. Loved the last two lines- a puppy begging for love. (Report) Reply

    Cats, like daughters, are always loving and caring and doing favors but the puppy, like the boys, are always demanding. Nice poem. (Report) Reply

    The cat you wish could embark on a hunting expedition but I doubt the puppy. The puppy in you is still growing and who knows what the puppy will be tomorrow. Nice job! (Report) Reply

    are the cats so lovable giving the love unconditionally? sorry I couldn't get the picture right...anyway it is only animal spirit! ! but the way cats meow at people is too scary and I can't symbolize those little being as the givers of love....in contrary the puppies are lovable and go to people wagging their tails..Congratulations Tanja Bulovic..Keep it up..

    Ouch! Giving love as a huge favour? Only sociopaths do that. Steer well clear of anyone who makes you feel like you are begging for it. Nothing cute about this at all. Very meaningful use of metaphor. So much for domestic animals, sounds like someone subjected to domestic abuse! (Report) Reply

    Very sensible. Wishing dt instead of being the one craving to be cared for, you're the one showing care and sharing the love to others. We all find ourselves fighting ds battle in ourselves at one point or d other. Great write. (Report) Reply

    This is hard to say
    (I so lack tact,)
    But I’ve met a few
    Nymphomaniacs;
    And no one’s ever
    Was ever so kind
    To bare without strings
    Her behind. (Report) Reply

    How lovely. I wrote one called - The Cat is Free - Everyone thinks it is about me. But no it was about a cat we loved.
