Give me a Clue

To a novice lover, the opposite sex is something of a mystery. Men aren't as emotionally sophisticated as women. They often appear clumsy and careless or brash and overconfident. When lovestruck they become even more clumsier.

I remember the feeling of utter helplessness on the subject of wooing. Books never helped. Friends were a source of incorrect and often dangerous suggestions. Films filled you with fantasy options that may never work in reality.

So what does the hapless soul do?

Well what I did was ask the very subjects of my affection on how to woo them.

Trouble was each one gave a different answer.

Go figure. Love has no logic.

Here I try to capture the utter despair of a wooing soul. Someone did think it was rather cute.



Give me a clue

How to woo you

I’m all confused through and through



Show me some hope

Throw me a rope

Stop me sliding down this slope



This ain’t just a crush; I’m not making a fuss

Feel such a rush, and my heart is a mush

Why do I feel obsessed, I thought you would have guessed?


I need a look

I’m an unread book

Promise you I’ll have you hooked



It’s not a game

I feel so lame

Stop me burning in this flame



Will we be a pair, in love’s golden glare?

There’s so much to share; I do know you care

Don’t wanna be a pest, don’t wanna fail this test.



Give me a clue

How to woo you

For I’m confused through and through



Show me a way

Just what to say

I’ll still be waiting come what may...



Words can’t define, the way you make me shine

Show me a sign; I’ll build you a shrine

I wanna say the rest, I wanna be your best....
