Your Haughty Sneer

Updated on April 11, 2012

Hasty, haughty judgement....

Snapping Cupid's arrow....
Snapping Cupid's arrow.... | Source

May I have this dance?


I once was so bliss stricken,

I thought I must be smitten,

With love from Cupid’s bow.


But with your haughty sneer

Fresh sounded in my ear,

‘twas dashed upon the rocks below.


You could have thought more twice,

It surely would be nice,

If love might have a second chance.


You may have found another

Who will treat you like a brother,

But never know the thrill of our lost dance.


For I have found my lover,

And need not any other

With thrills no less than mine that day.


When with that haughty sneer,

You pranced away to cheer

Lost love you might have had, to stay.

      It may be a cop out to say "Thanks, everyone." But I am happy that you enjoyed this or found it something you recognize and could appreciate. Folks can be cruel, even if they aren't also bullies. The "haughty sneer" says in effect, "I wouldn't dain to dance with someone like you. I have my mind fixed on something better, more exciting, older, younger, taller, shorter, etc. And isn't it a form of judging?

      Deborah Brooks: Converting thoughts to words is something we all do. Writers do it with written words, the rest of us do it in daily speech. We revere the ones who can do it fluently in either case, especially those who do so cleverly and well, some with all the beauty of a Winston Churchill who did speech and writing so well. Many Hubbers have this gift as we all know, and we seek them out to improve our own capabilities. Thanks for your reading of this one of my efforts here.

      ... those haughty fatal sneers...

      Some people are accomplished sneerers - they kill the love they so desperately need...

      Only heaven knows why.

      Voted up and sad :)

      Voted up and beautiful but with a touch of sadness. It is usually those who sneer who wind up as the losers.

      BlossomSB: Yes, life is often like that, even when the haughty sneers are kept inside by the sneerer. Thanks for the vote.

      raciniwa: It was not a mistake to ask, and (who knows?) it may not have been a mistake to decline...except for the form used to express the refusal. Thanks for the comment.
