My Octopus

by The Parrott King Jordan R. Stephens   Oct 26, 2021

Won’t you be my octopus?
Won’t you climb about my walls?
Won’t you catch me with your tentacles
If ever I should fall?

Won’t you sing until I fall asleep
Every single night?
My octopus, I must confess,
I love to hold you tight.

I can’t stand to see you out around
With any other guy.
I will give you sixteen tissues
If I ever see you cry.

And if you’re busy doing genius stuff
Cause octopods are smart
Then I’ll wipe those tears right up for you
Cause babe, you own my heart.

    Lovely. Glad you got the word Octopods in there, it should be in more poems, this may be the first one! Good read, thank you.

    This was adorable! I admit, I don't think I've ever come across references of an octopus in a poem about love, and it was really cute and original here. Well done!
