If you catch my eye
It’s not because you’re an angel
It’s because you appeal to me
If I walk up to you,
It’s not because you have power to pull me
It’s because I had the confidence to walk up to you
If I choose to start up a chat with you,
It’s not because I noticed the flirt in you!
It is because I am a poet thus…
If I hit the point right in your face
It’s not because I am like other guys
It is because, I didn’t want to be a loser -wuss
If I lay back after your usual, “I am not ready for a relationship.”
It’s not because I am weak and incompetent.
It’s because you, should know what you want to
If I decide to take your digits,
It’s not because I am being like ex
It’s because I want to have you forget the heartbreak
And I cling to you day after day,
It’s not because I am clingy
It is because I am a man; your kind says I have to keep on the run.
And if after that all, I am trying to keep you,
It is not because I am trying to play married. It is because I have learnt to treasure you thus…
