Behind Blue Eyes

dog by scavengercat808
You peek at life through your high fence
Hide behind bared teeth and demon growl
but your eyes betray
Behind blue eyes lies the soul of a pup
who wants only to be told he's good
to feel gentle strokes upon his barrel chest
and to hear,
again and again,
that I am yours
and you are mine.
