time away from the game of

seeking out a lover keeps the

shy in the dark until the last

moment when the hormones

may command & the eyes

cause the mind to stir & the

body to follow when spring

rears its exciting face for many

the sun unravels its rays down

upon the skin warming &

bringing possibly a new insight

into the ability of one to attract



then & there the preparation begins

the minutes & seconds building

to hours spent in front of the mirror

time taken away from habits once

repeated but now left by the wayside

& makeup, new hairstyles, trips to

the gym, bathing in cologne, washing

in perfume & the constant self-critique

which comes with each rejection that

might ensue.


practicing becomes the new habit when

the pondering of new pick up lines

takes up most of the day & the quick

rambling to already attached friends &

family breeds new slants to approach

the crush while at the same time causing

more worry as to wonder just what it is

that one is doing wrong.


but the over eager may learn soon

that the constant pursuit of something will

most likely draw less interesting prospects

& a lack of substance in conversation,

personality, etc. for though the physical

can lead one to hop from rock to rock

as a frog in a stream, the payoff is still the

same---lying belly up in the dirty water

stirring up the sand below.
