A Fate Accepted

At first the attraction is visual, even physical
As you are drawn into his web
Crystal blue eyes, red hair to fondle
A nose that would rival ancient Greeks

Not to mention that feeling you get
When you enter his everyday space
Gaze into those love hungry eyes
Feel the room pulse with joyous energy

The moment of truth arrives like a cold north wind.
Affection, so pleasurable, has turned to obsession,
Then reality unfolds and you realize
You are involved with an Attention Whore!

Beautiful eyes, usually so soulful, now glare
Demanding you remain at his side
And you brace for the meltdown
That announces your departure

But you are torn! Love so complete
Heart so full, you accept your fate.
For this forever union will go on,
Until this adorable Siberian Husky crosses the Rainbow Bridge.
