Dear Girl

Dear girl would you like to waste some time with me?

I’m a he and you’re a she.

We won’t get anywhere, we’ll go nowhere fast.

This, if it happens, will not last.

It will do to be going on with, if you see it that way.

Until one or other of us goes away.

If this is not what you want, okay, you may want something real.

You and I are people who feel.

Practically speaking, some practice might do you good.

Rather than nothing, for a while, maybe you would?

It’s over now.

It never happened, anyhow.

You are a girl from my past.

It did not and could not last.

I did not want to let you down.

Smile, don’t frown.

Sniff a flower, then go on your way.

Whoever or whatever is here to stay?

Good day.
