The cat that stole my heart
Its only been three days. Three days Im telling you! How can you fall in love, that crazy in love, in only three days?!? But look at him, just take a good look of him jumping to that window. Isnt he the most gracious, the most gorgeous thing on earth? With his gray fur and dark stripes, he could steal anybodys heart. Trust me. I know what you think; a goldfish and a cat just cant work. Im going to show you though. And what you dont know is that he likes me as well; youd have to see him, comfortably installed on the window sill, taking a sun bath. When hes not sleeping, I SWEAR he cant get his eyes off me. You ought to see the lust glittering when he looks right into me. He even makes signs with his lips (I have to admit I dont really understand the messages, but I figured that a big circle with the tongue means love). All there is left to do is open the window and let him in, close to my loving heart.
Today he brought a bird for me; how cute of him, dont you agree? Ok, its not too pretty, a bit torn as well, have to admit. God, I hate to see blood. But my knight in shiny fur was still very cute with a prey hanging from the mouth. He just threw it away after some time though, like some garbage. That wasnt too gentleman, but I guess he didnt like the taste. Yet Im sure he did the catching for me; Im obviously all he has on his mind. Just look at him looking at me...its almost embarrassing. Sad Im stuck in that bowl. And its not like theres a way out, no one cares about me, I am merely fed every day. All I need to do is open the window and let him in. Easy enough.
The night is so lonely. I know he wont come at the window, but I cant help it; I just keep staring, hoping he would be there...for me. This night is particularly beautiful. Clear sky, a few stars and a big, bright moon. Everything so calm. I wonder what he does when hes not at the window. Is he with another? Hard to tell. At least HE doesnt have to wonder about that with me. Theres not much I can do but stay loyal...Actually, he is the only real person I ever really met. However, I knew it was THE one when my eyes first lay sight on him. When he saw me...his eyes too shined. Its all so clear. All I have to do is open the window and let him in. Soon.
Another week has gone. Still he is far from me. Always so close to my heart and mind nonetheless! Maybe you considered it was just a little crush, simply a little heart jump. Well, you were wrong! Not one day he didnt pass by. Yesterday he even scratched the window with his cute little paw. It was no use though. Only proved his feelings toward me once more. Such great love story we could make! Only if we were to be united! Maybe life has other plans for us. But I do not lose faith, as everything will come in due time. And for that due time to come, all left to do is open that window and let him in. I mustnt lose faith.
Tragedy! Catastrophy! My home was moved! Just when he was making his daily visit at my window! Two huge hands grabbed my dear house and violently carried me away. I can still see my previous spot from here, lit by the sun. But I am set so I cannot see the window. The giant beasts want me far from my adored companion, all hope is lost! Or is it? What if my beloved came to rescue me? Yes, yes! This is obviously just another test! I feel the right moment is coming. All to be done is open the window and let his heart guide him to me. That is all.
Here comes a new afternoon away from him. More away than ever. A very hot afternoon too; I am basically boiling. Or maybe it is what I feel for another that warms my body. One way or the other, I will endure any pain, for I know the future is bright. I wonder if he is waiting too, standing proudly where he does every day. I am sure he is. Oh, Here comes a giant again, sweating and gesturing. What is it going to do this time? Its gone to the place I once called my territory! I observe every movement (more out of boredom than curiosity), until I realize it is paining to open the window. THE window. I am sure it is trying to. Must be! Wait, I think it is actually succeeding. Its screaming now. Cant say at what. Or whom. The window is open; I am positive it is. My sweetheart has to find me now. But the giant is back, and its running after something. May it be what I hope! And it is! The cat that stole my heart is just there, beside me! His right paw in my bowl! He is rescuing me, grabbing me, slowly, toward our glorious future!! Humph. Out of the water is not as pleasant as I would have wished though. Not at all. But here is my liberator with a solution! Hop, he gulps me. A hero Im telling you. Truly a hero.
Love is blind.
