It was a damp and dreary Tuesday
in the evening at the bar
The tavern's door was open
when she entered like a star

She asked for a 'Cuba Libre'
as she brushed my arm aside
My nostrils flared from perfume
as she turned to me and sighed

Her hair was thick and flaxen
and her eyes deep almond brown
Her lips were full and painted
and curved as if to frown

Soon my gaze was recognized
and she asked what was my thought
Her beauty, I said, was stunning
and could it well be bought?

She smiled and said, "all things my friend,
are always best when shared
And when it comes to lovin' me
two souls will then be bared"

She finished her drink and smiled at me
then turned with grace to leave

saying...

"And when next you fall in love my friend,
perhaps you'll think of me"

Well, PU, I guess she told you. But I guess that is just the sort of thing that happens when a man lets his eyes bug out and his tongue fall to the ground. Better luck next time. ~L

Yep. I have been in that same situation a few times, PU. It's called learning to deal with, and understand the feminine mystic. Didn't work for me, I'm still mystified.

Thanks Lori Rhoden. Of all the nights to be in a tux instead of my Che Guevara T-shirt.

You're right Mr. Bolton! I'm gonna pick me up a copy of Betty Freiden's book and get me some moxie!

Thanks for the comments and the inspiration!

Many floors have I been thrown to, my friend, by sudden and on-going dreams - - - but that made the victories (when "they" allowed them)much, much sweeter.

enjoyed

Thanks so much for you visit Mr. Beard. The important thing is that you got yourself back up and gave it another 'go'!

Thanks again!

Hello P.U. Your words are a reminder that one should never judge a book by its cover. As the old saying goes....Win some, lose some. Thanks for the read  ~ Alana

Thanks Pinkie! I always judge books by their "cover". Sometimes I'm right (win) and sometimes I'm wrong (lose). Like you, I'm very much divided on the whole 'yin~yang thing.

Thanks again.
