Slow Down!

The date was our first, it was a wonderful night

I looked in her eyes, things were going all right

It was nice, it was good, then all went askew

she whispered with smile and said "I love you"

I stammered, I stuttered, I fiddled for word

but I found no escape from the words that I heard

she was locked on my eye, she awaited reply

I quivered, I quaked, I looked back at the eye

It wanted an answer and it would not wait

It wanted it now from our very first date

I smiled through my teeth and with eloquent aim

I looked square at the eye and said, what was your name?

Hiya Arb, this is so funny! OMG! If I was the girl, I would have slapped you silly... or cry my eyes out.. whichever comes first. Well done!

Have a nice day,
