My sense of judgment is not always the best
When putting my heart through another test
When it comes to the field of romance
It's time I took notice and took a stance!

Two times hit by Cupid has really done me in
Made me more cautious of every sexy grin
Given me radars when slackers come to call
Put me on my guard against one and all!

Ain't going to be seduced by a pair of tight jeans
He'd better tell the truth and say just what he means
No blue-eyed bedroom demon shall hypnotize
My innocent heart with sweet nothing lies

I'll see through the charm of the muscled hunk
Won't waste my time and put up with his junk
Can't be persuaded to let him get very far
Just because he drives a new shiny sports car

The next time Cupid thinks I need some man in my life
I hope he remembers I've already been someone's wife!
I'll be more cautious of little men who have wings
Cause when you get hit you lose all track of things!

So when Cupid comes calling and aiming his bow
I'll be sure to hide and tell him definitely NO!
I think that I'll handle it without help from above
The next time that I fall, it will be simply for love

I love the rhyme!

Very well written...such a beautiful flow..I loved "no blue eyed bedroom demon shall hypnotize.. my innocent heart with sweet nothing lies."  So cool.  How about brown eyed guys? (laugh)  James

D...any words from you make me feel special!

infinat3....my barriers didn't last long. Which leads me to answer James...I was cursed to fall for a such of brown eyes with long, smoltering black eye lashes.  He's still working on me!

Thank you Martie & Shelley!

Deb~
This is sooooooo cute.
Sounds like a good game-plan to me.
Now wait until some good looking hunk bats those baby-blues at you .... let's see if you can hold your ground !  LOL  
Absolutely adorable.
