Rated: E · Poetry · Psychology · #1473685
Don’t ask a girl what is in her heart.

Why ask a girl whether she loves?
And having asked, why hope she will
Reply in the affirmative?
No, her beans she would never spill.

A girl has softer instincts that
Tell her not to unveil her thought
‘cause once her mind is known to all,
The power she has would be lost.

She knows too well that vagueness is
Her shield against being tricked in.
She does ensure an escape route
Ere anything she does begin.

Women, through necessity, are
Trained to sense danger beforehand.
While men are prone to blindly jump,
Women ensure they safely land.
