An Imagined Conversation at a Bar

Updated on August 18, 2015

You are an incredibly beautiful woman
But I’m sure I’m not the first man who has said so
“A woman never tires of being told she pleases a man
But I don’t go wherever the winds may blow”

I’m sure you are not compelled to whim
But I wonder if you have an expectation of deference?
“Do you mean do I expect favor because of my beauty?
But first, do you prefer my desire for life or just my presence?”

Of course I would prefer the involvement of your desires
I am not a man given to merely viewing stars in the sky
“And yet you sought me out to give me praise
You know nothing of me except that I please your eye”

Are you offended by this for I could think of nothing else?
Chance sleeps late so I decided to present myself to you
“Yes and you presented yourself with a view to the skies
And now that we understand what is left for us to do?”

Well you have put me on the spot for I wonder if I made a mistake
You have challenged my intentions and my mind is a blank slate
“Maybe it is you who sleeps late as chance controls our destiny
For the question has become what decides a pretty girl's fate?”

      @James-wolve - Thanks man. Sometimes I go where eagles dare and attempt to see things from a woman's point of view and try to write something that might represent what they would say.

      Very awesome and a very intimate conversation between too clever ordinary persons.I voted up.
