I Said She Said

Updated on April 27, 2013

I said, “Let’s spend the night together”
She said, “Is it for now or is it forever?”
I said, “I can’t promise you tomorrow”
She said, “Instead you promise me sorrow”

She said, “I don’t want to move so fast”
I said, “It doesn’t matter ‘cause love doesn’t last”
She said, “You don’t know how to love a woman”
I said, “I wonder if you know how to love a man”

I said, “What is it that you want?”
She said, “I’m not something to flaunt”
I said, “That’s not what you are to me”
She said, “But that’s all you’ll let me be”

She said, “Maybe I’m just not your type”
I said, “I just wanted to spend the night”
She said, “But I’ll only be a memory”
I said, “But a memory of you only”

I said, “We don’t have to spend the night”
She said, “I just want it to feel right”
I said, “It feels right to me but not to you”
She said, “That’s because I don’t know what to do”

She said, “I’m tired of waiting for you to make up your mind”
I said, “I know you’re the only love I’ll ever find”
She said, “But you act like you don’t know what you got”
I said, “I do but every girl talks about what it is I’m not”

I said, “I know I love you but is it about control?”
She said, “I don’t want anything but your heart and soul”
I said, “Ok, I’m gonna’ leave and I’ll call you tomorrow”
She said, “But only if you’re about love and not sorrow”

      Amazing and nicely put.Different goals! Men and women are quite different, which basically means that (surprise!) they are driven by different things in a mate.

      @James-wolve - Thank you. Yes we are different and that makes it tough..

      @manatita - What are you talking about? I wrote it last night... please explain your accusation.

      I stand corrected. Remarkably, I have stumbled across a poem with this rhythm and flavour some time ago.

      Upon reflection, I could have asked. My apologies. Much Peace.

      @manatita - Thanks for that and I accept your apology. The irony of you original comment is that I do not read poetry. I don't like it! Ha... and yet I enjoy writing whatever it is one would call what I write. Virtually anything I could say has probably been uttered in some way shape or form over the centuries. I don't presume to be discovering new planets or the 9th note in a scale. But I try very hard to think for myself and allow my own style to venture forth. Thanks for reading it in the first place.

      Funny. (smile) There may be new planets and ninth notes in a scale!

      Nothing wrong with your poetry. In fact it's excellent!

      My thoughts are usually inward focused, that is to say, the esoteric, lofty, reverential and the sublime. Still, I acknowledge different styles. I see a oneness world and all dances here in this hallowed life.
