A Lovers Learning Curve......

She says " I will sleep with you , you're pretty
nice and you have great eyes "
I guess she was thinking I should be pleased
her giving to me by surprise

And in truth her appeal was as soft
as the touch of her hand
But to tell the truth her attitude was
a bit much for this man

And when we were out she said you
would look so much nicer in my choice of clothes
"But i like blue jeans and boots" .....guess
I'm not the best dresser that she knows

Vanity is the price you pay in
the up towns of lovers
As for me .......I'll take the train.....
if I have my druthers

She got up with her friend and left
together to powder her nose
So I ......I finished my drink and left
she'll get the message........ I suppose

It's funny ........I've never felt that those
with all the choices have very much to gain
I watched as she strutted her stuff away
and wondered ......just what was her name

My advice for women like that now.....
if you'd rather have a mirror for a mate
Then look a little deeper in the reflection
happiness perhaps ......isn't your fate

I did not need the vanity to get up and leave. She lost me with the statement about having sex and calling it "sleep with you". She is deceitful even to herself.

This is profound, a horseback! I love dressing up and looking good, but not when it goes overboard. Thanks for sharing!! Will share as well.

Great write! I feel for both men and women --we dress up sex and call it love--and sometimes we mistake loving a person for changing them--how screwed up is that?

That's telling her off and she deserves it. A man who wears jeans and boots is A ok in my book, it's not the clothes that makes the man, it's the heart that understands. Cheers..

Voted up and awesome. Vanity is a negative trait. It is so much better if you have an open and honest relationship and the heck with it if you both sometimes look less than perfect. Enjoyed this.

This was fun - I loved it. I once knew a gal who would not date a fellow, if he wore glasses, crossed his legs, and didn't have enough hair. I fell in love with a man who wore glasses, crossed his legs - sometimes - LOL and had white hair. I don't think she approved at first, but I know she eventually got the message. My love, was the best man ever. She is now married to a guy who is almost bald. I wonder if he crosses his legs??? Sorry I got carried away, but this is what your poem did to me!!
