Look Into My Eyes ~ A Subliminal Poem

Updated on June 20, 2012

Look into my eyes

You know what I want

Your greasy hand petting me?

No.

Try again.

I have lived here for seven years.

You should know me by now.

Quit giving me so much milk!

You watch too many cartoon cats lapping at milk.

It makes me constipated!

Guess again.

More water?

No thanks, I have plenty.

I'm making a mental note.

To trip you tonight during your midnight pee.

The question is: before or after you go?

Look into my eyes.

You adore me.

I tolerate you.

Now give me what I want!

Oh, how special.

A tiny bowl of little brown fish-shaped morsels.

You wonder why I throw-up at 3 a.m.

How would you like to eat only rice cakes every day?

You might slim down a bit.

Okay, you're not getting it.

Look into my eyes.

What do you see?

Look closer.

I'm here for your soul!

Nah, just kidding.

I want some catnip.

      Ryem, thank you! I'm glad you could relate to my poem even if you don't have a cat. Very creative interpretation! I really appreciate the vote!

      I read this poem and I related it to being a woman who's tired of the same ol' things and she is yearning for more. Maybe because I've never had a cat, I see myself in this poem. This is really good writing! voted up

      kj force, I read somewhere that cats avoid eye contact with humans. Every cat I've ever had always stared me directly in the eyes! Just goes to show you that you can't believe everything your read!

      Thanks for the comment!

      Anyone who has known or owned a cat can not help but love this. It's nice to see you back in the mainstream.

      Bill, cats sure can stare you down and that's what I was going for here. I'm so glad it worked! Thanks for the comment!

      That poem describes a cat as well as anything I have ever read. Well done my friend. I hope you are well, Lisa; haven''t seen much of you lately.
