I Thought That You Were Hot - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

If I wasn't who I was,
That you thought I should be...
Then who were you?
And why did you pretend to be...
Someone that I thought was real,
But wasn't.Or wouldn't.Or couldn't be...
Romantic with me.

I thought that you were hot.
That nonstop hot!
But you proved to a flicker,
That could not heat up my flame.

You proved to me a heat,
Was not meant to be.
So I laid without a fire to ignite the night!
I laid there wishing you were out of sight.

I thought you were hot.
That nonstop hot!
But you proved to a flicker,
That could not heat up my flame.

You proved to me a heat,
Was not meant to be.
So I laid without a fire to ignite the night!
I laid there wishing you were out of sight.

I thought you were hot.
That nonstop hot!
So I laid without a fire to ignite the night!
I laid there wishing you were out of sight.

I thought you were hot.
That nonstop hot!
So I laid without a fire to ignite the night!
I laid there wishing you were out of sight.
So I laid without a fire to ignite the night!
I laid there wishing you were out of sight.

I thought you were hot.
That nonstop hot!
So I laid without a fire to ignite the night!
I laid there wishing you were out of sight.

Thought that you were hot,
But you were not.
So I laid without a fire to ignite.
And prayed that you would say goodnight,
And be out of sight.

Thought that you were hot,
But you were not.
And prayed that you would say goodnight,
And be out of sight.
I prayed that you would say goodnight,
Or 'later'.
But just be gone.
