    The first day that we met
    I knew who you were
    You were the one for me
    The one worthy to love

    Your ways were unique
    You had confidence
    And intrigue

    You captured my attention
    With grace
    And with ease

    Your smile was bright
    Your pockets were fat
    You even had a couple
    Of cute rugrats

    I set out to accomplish
    This wonderful feat
    Of chasing you catching you
    Making you see
    That I liked you

    And I don’t know
    Maybe
    Just maybe
    I could make you
    Like me too

    I tried to buy you
    And rub you
    Sex you
    Stake claim in you

    But your mind wasn’t weak
    To my aura
    Like usual

    Other men had give in
    Surrendered and succumb
    My light was intense
    Sexy and fun

    You resisted and swayed
    Dodged
    Even ducked
    Boy was I having some real bad luck

    It wasn’t going my way
    Not my way at all
    Causing resentment and fear
    To stir in my soul

    Tantrums I threw and tears I shed
    Making you wonder
    Did she fall on her head

    As the realization set in
    That my plan wouldn’t work
    I felt defeated
    Rejected
    Unable to look

    At your face
    In your eyes
    Eyes so beautiful to me
    Now that I see

    How foolish
    I’ve seemed
    I’m embarrassed
    Ashamed
    Please
    Forgive me

    As I sit here alone
    Right back at square one
    The sadness is overwhelming
    What the **** have I done

    Not a day passes by
    That I don’t think of you
    What we had
    Was very special
    Exciting and new

    Thoughts of us laughing
    Dwell in my mind
    The bond we created
    Forever caught
    In time

    The whole impact of you
    Was tremendous on me
    What shall I do
    With this new energy

    Sometimes it hurts
    Sometimes I fly free

    You’ll never know
    With time and patience
    I’ll show
    The world
    A brand new me :)

    I appreaciate your
    humility

    You've said what millions of women
    have been ashamed to admit
