The Elusive Lady


She appears out of nowhere, and in a jiffy she is gone
Keeping me guessing, about what went so wrong
She is an elusive lady to me

She throws out a bait, for a possible date
And without an excuse, she arrives very late
She is an elusive lady to me

She looks me in a way, like she wants me to stay
And suddenly remembers a visit, which she has to pay
She is an elusive lady to me

She is well aware, of depth of my woes
Yet she enjoys keeping me, always on my toes
She is an elusive lady to me

She enjoys playing, her very elusive trick
My desperation it seems, gives her a kick
She is an elusive lady to me

If I take the cue, and begin to play her game
For the consequences, she herself would be to blame
She is an elusive lady to me

I hope she realizes and tries to understand
If this goes on long, she would lose a good friend
She won't remain an elusive lady to me.

    ‘I hope she realizes and tries to understand /If this goes on long, she would lose a good friend She won't remain an elusive lady to me.’

    Indeed she is elusive …and lastly poet recovers from delusiveness …and its poetic mastery …

    Ya there are a few females who enjoy doing exactly this to their guys. I should say it is a complete poem in all respects. You have said some words about the situation, and also the reason why she does it. (My desperation it seems, gives her a kick) . and also what would finally happen. If i were you, i would have allowed her to tease me more an get those kicks out of it. To get more such enjoyment she would come back to me again and again to tease me more. A nice lovely romantic poem. i will vote 10 for you (Report) Reply
