|“So tell me Sally, do you have a crush?”
Her nudging smile made me blush.
“A crush?” I cry, my brain a scramble,
The answer was complicated, I had to gamble.
“What a joke, now who told you that?”
My brain shut down, and I halt all chat.
A dazzling male had just walked past,
My Prince Charming had arrived at last.
After all the years of uncertain love,
I was quite sure he was sent from above.
“Hi what’s your name? My name’s John.”
This was Prince Charming, I couldn’t be wrong.
“Sally my name is,” spills from my mouth.
Starting from there, it all went south.
My words and sentences became a jumble,
Simple phrases made me stumble.
To my disappointment, he started to laugh.
My admiration for him dwindled to half.
The way he laughed at me may have been wrong,
But my feelings for him were really strong.
No one is perfect and I could live with one flaw,
But his insensitivity snagged like a claw.
Maybe he wasn’t making fun of me,
He could have been laughing... at that tree.
I know my argument may seem weak,
But a future without him seems so bleak.
When he opened his mouth and began to talk,
His snide remarks made me balk.
To make things worse he started to criticize,
My hope and love were beginning to capsize.
He jabbed at my friends behind their back,
And pointed out the qualities that I lack.
Had I really thought his eyes were intelligent?
No sign of brain activity seemed to be present.
Those cold brown eyes looked more like poop,
I had noticed the eyelids beginning to droop,
If you looked closely his eyes would have read,
“This brain isn’t being used properly and hasn’t been fed.”
We all know that behind those eyes,
His vacant brain was crammed with lies.
His amazing hair now dripped with grease,
His self-centered talk will never cease.
What had I seen in such a man?
It must have been part of a devious plan.
I was tricked into thinking he was a Prince,
Now just the thought of him makes me wince.
I guess he wasn’t the one for me,
And a life together wasn’t meant to be.
Maybe God has someone better in store,
The perfect man that I was made for.
His eyes will be loving, not a pile of poo,
I would love him and he’d love me too.
We’d hit off straight from the start,
Sharing each day, never apart.
John admitted he had lied,
That Prince Charming is denied.
