Fit For It

I don’t want a boy

She said

With romantic ideals

I need a man

With balls of steel


The Rescuer

We can
leave
together,

He
said,

I promise
I’ll look
after you.

When
will you
grow up,

She
said,

You poor
misguided
fool.

Flawed

You all make it look easy

So I thought I’d give it a go

But what you get on a plate

I can’t replicate

So at least now, I know


Undeserving

I’ll
never
fall
in love
again

Not
that
I ever
wanted
to be

Love is
for those
with
delicate
souls

And
not
for the
likes
of me

‘Right Here Right Now’

It’s funny how

To bookish types

I certainly was once attracted

Whereas now I’m older

I’ve no time for the smoulder

And need something far less protracted


Timerous Beasties

When
I picture
my
youth

I see
you
and
me

Sitting
beneath
that old
oak tree

You
reading
a book

My
head
on your
shoulder

Both
of us
hoping

The
other
is
bolder

Disappointing The Kid Inside

I must’ve overdosed on Disney

Or read too many fairy tales

For endings like this

Don’t actually exist

As true love always fails


Sleeping Beauty

I wish I could sleep forever

As silly as that seems

For then we’d be together

Happy, in my dreams

‘I Made It Through The Wilderness…’

Your touch

Leaves me reeling

Your kisses

Make me swoon

It seems

That for now

From romance,

Somehow,

I am no longer

Immune


Carnal Knowledge

These
blissful
feelings
are all
consuming

Who knew
one kiss
would
be so
subsuming

How Times Change

I guess I was re-watching

One of those films from my youth

As I was reminded

That for romance now

I am too long in the tooth


It’s Way More Than 10…

It’s the little things

That I hate

And the big things too

In fact there isn’t anything

That I actually like about you

Random #170

“Men speak conveniently of love when it their serves their purpose. And when it doesn’t, it’s a burden to them.”

– Maid Marian

What Should Have Been

Twenty two years

Just me and you

Sitting on the sofa

With wine and food

But it’s not to be

As you’re three years gone

So any romance today

Just feels wrong

Xxx

Last In Line

If you continue to push this

She said

And I am forced to choose

You really should be prepared

She said

For the fact I won’t pick you

Hope(less)

So it seems I have

A second chance

Another shot

At potential romance

Problem is

Where to start

How do I open

This Stygian heart

But

If only I could ask you,
But I never should.

If only I could show you,
But I never would.

If only you could tell me,
But you never should.

If only you could love me,
But you never would.

Theatrics

Of my love

For you

I’ve never been

More certain

It is time

To drop

The safety curtain

So with confidence

And fiery gusto

Let’s just get

On with our show

Quickstep

Run around

Jump up and down

There’s a new love in town!

He’s really neat

And ever so sweet

This black heart skips a beat

I think that now

I’m ready for more

I want him to whisk me

Across the dancefloor

The Over 40’s Club

Let’s both jump

Into this taxi

Please just take me home

And have me

I’m done waiting

Now is our time

Let’s grasp this moment

Whilst we’re in our prime

Treachery

This cannot be
What you want

Surely
It's a joke

For I am not
That kind of woman

And you are not
That bloke

Timerous Beasties

When
I picture
my
youth

I see
you
and
me

Sitting
beneath
that old
oak tree

You
reading
a book

My
head
on your
shoulder

Both
of us
hoping

The
other
is
bolder

Too Late

You
only
want
me
now

Because
he
says
he
does

Well
you
had
your
chance

But
you
rebuffed
my
advance

So go
jump
in front
of a
bus

Fuck Buddies

I
won’t
always
be
here,
you
know

For
when
you
feel
the
need
to
ask

Not
while
there
are
more
dicks
to
blow

And
other
glows
in
which
to
bask

Road Trip

Shall
we
run
away

She
said

To
where
we can
both
be free?

You
don’t
have
to ask
me twice

He
said

I’ll
go fetch
the car
key

Temptress

We
really
shouldn’t
do this

She
said

If it’s
something
you’ll
regret

I won’t
know
until
we’re
done

He
said

And I
haven’t
started
yet
