He does not call any longer
Her response seems clear to him now.
Her heart is committed elsewhere
And not swayed by his request.
She recalls their first meeting
It was planned without her knowing.
At a lunch date in a traditional eatery
He made his proposition.
What he offered was the longing of any nubile woman
He was friendly and polite.
Over a shared meal
He spoke of his background and personality
He did not feel that he was being too forward
As he saw in her a woman that loves God.
Staring at her phone she fumed
Fumed at her decision to turn him down
What’s the flipside of having a man in her life?
Oh men! So what now has it come to?
