It's not about you



Heavy is my heart
Hit hard by a failed romance
End of sweet kisses

Hoist the anchor now
Set sail to find another beau
Back to the action

State your aim young man
I'll fight for a new girlfriend
Surely risk my all

So those are the facts
I'll spend hours of planning
Just to win her heart

We'll make a great team
That will fix my loneliness
Or am I dreaming?

It's not about you
Woo by gentle persuasion
For she's a princess

  1. Does love come from a determined search for a mate? Or does it just happen when we least expect it? An interesting Wordle.

  5. Ah, but he needs to know that another heart cannot really cure someone's loneliness! No other person is totally responsible for someone else's well being. If I were that lass I would run away from a lad who appeared so very needy.

    1. I agree! you can't hang happiness on another person. A great poem.

  6. This reads like the kind of overwhelming passion felt by a heart right after it has been broken, when things are felt way too intense to be completely clear or true...

  7. Sometimes the greatest love just happens.

  8. I love the picture you chose Robin that goes with this poem (a bit of a fickle heart?)....perhaps you can win her heart, but I have found my heart was won by one who showed up and just loved me!

  9. I like the closing stanzas best....yes, it is not about him, but treating her well.

  10. The games we play! It is a hard game to win at --if one can win--

  11. Love tastes best when savored in memory many years later.

  12. Sometimes one gets back into the game far too quickly when it might be best to heal first and dive back in later ;-)

  13. No, it's not about him, if he truly loves her. But is he just seeking to fill a void? Enjoyed reading this.

  17. It's not about searching or finding someone! It's about moving on with a hopeful heart.
