To be or not to be. This could have been better...

If you are mine,

Faithful is divine,

A heartbeat as well,

And a hand to held.


If you are a flower,

In the morning in bed,

A tray of water and powder,

With a kiss to your head.


If you are a kitten,

Scratchpost, I'll be,

Meow, I'll listen,

Purring next to me.


If you are a singer,

My ears are yours to have,

A ring on your finger,

I'm yours to command.


If you are a dream,

Pills may seem dark,

You are my Queen,

May you rend my heart.


If you are poison,

I'll become addicted,

Submissive husband,

Sorry to be afflicted.


If I was your human,

I would be made of rubber,

Molded to be better than,

A man who makes you shudder...

Very different, Raven....Pretty obvious my favorite verse is the cat one. Good work!

Very poetic and imaginative, Raven! The intriguing descriptions, the curious comparisons, the underlying feeling of tenderness with a bit of irony... masterful work! I absolutely loved it!
