He Owns Me - Poem by L. K. Thayer

he is my bliss
I do not want to
betray
his tenderness
he is my
containment
his body rises
with each breath
tail curled
I am his
father
I am his
world

    What a great tribute to a faithful friend. Indeed, you have inspired me to write one to my horse..I mean dog..he is just big as a horse! Somehow, I believe a poem about one's dog is very telling... of the master. Barb (Report) Reply

    He owns only your heart. Great poem! Thanks, I really know the feeling you express so well in such few words. Unconditional love goes both ways. His heart is owned too. (Report) Reply
