S is for… Sensory Overload

Posted on 9th June 2010 in Blog/ cats/ writing workshop

For prompt 4 of porridge’s writing workshop.

I shouldn’t be here

Would he find out?

I’d promised ‘never again’

Could he find out?

It was so beautiful to look at

I’m just looking, looking can’t hurt can it?

My heart contracted

I looked around, had anyone noticed?

My eyes widened

There was no one here to see

My fingers reached out

Could I? Should I?

I could feel my pulse

Was this love?

I wanted it

Was it lust?

I wanted to touch it

I shouldn’t

I needed it

I know it’s irrational, but I DO NEED IT

I needed to feel it

Just for minute

I needed to hold it

Oh how much I needed to hold it

I tentatively extended a hand

It looked up at me

My fingers brushed it

Oh so soft, so so soft

Our eyes connected

Such intense blue eyes

It blinked at me and I melted

Had anything ever looked so cute?

I guiltily snatched it up

Had anyone seen? I didn’t care

I held it close

Just for minute

I smelt it and buried my face in it’s soft fur

Now I know I love it

It purred

It loves me too!

The object(s) of my desire can be seen here
Any of them obviously, but from a pure ‘kitten porn’ point of view it would have to be the little black one on the left hand side near the bottom or the oh so beautiful little grey bundle about half way down! Forgive me, I have never hidden my love of cats!

    I clicked on the link and very quickly closed it. It is not safe for me to look at a cat rescue website. Two cats is quite enough and I would no doubt be weeping very quickly.
