As complicated as the calf that doesn’t want to suckle

December 28, 2020 - Reflections, Tenderness
As complicated as the calf that doesn’t want to suckle

She doesn’t understand me
She says my ways are not so clear
When I breathe, the air is sometimes hot
And on other days, it is not-so
She does not get the hang of me and my motions

I should teach myself some algebra
So that I can count the many times I’ve unsuccessfully asked her out
It seems I never ask at the right time or on a perfect day
Because she heaps a thread of excuses from all over
She strings the reasons why she can’t see me into a ball of wool

I don’t get her either
She’s as complicated as the calf that doesn’t want to suckle
She looks at me with blank eyes
Yet she signals me with haughty lips
She confuses me in my gullibility

And every time I think of closing this page
She comes in to befog my mind
She sends me in mystified puzzles
I guess she has a spell on me
I’m thrown into a spin every time she smiles

She has a clue of how weak I am to her ways
For when she speaks to me in the charming of voices
My heart rides in the canoes of the salty lake
As clear as the manifest of a sunny day
My heart loves to be rocked up and down, side by side by the prospects of walking on the entwined paths
