A Kitten

Don't run away from me
I just want to talk
touch You tenderly
purring like a cat
on a tin roof
I will enslave You
to think as I do
about me and in me
though it is dangerous
open me to the world
because mine is closed
baby kitty
don't try to fight
and so you are mine
shall we purr together
dancing on the roof?

I read darkness in this poem too and it is very well written. I hope the kitten gets away.

Hi Anna,
Your poem, I am reading as a metaphor and I sense a darkness through out. From the capturing and enslaving of the young kitten to mind control, this has me thinking you are not really speaking of a cat but of a human or humanity. Capturing the innocent and enslaving them for self interest is cruel and wrong. I wonder if you are speaking of child trafficking or abuse.
Perhaps I am projecting myself into this. However, I do get a sense of the dark and evilness of what goes on beneath the light of truth.
Thank you for posting this poetry. Please enlighten me about the message. Thank you again. kathy
