My Quandary Poem by Cowboy Ron Williams

My Quandary

Rating: 5.0


My neighbor wants to get me into bed.
I don't know why; I've never done a thing.
She must have thought some little word I said
would indicate I want to have a fling.

I never meant to lead her on like that;
this kind of thing could get quite out of hand.
Perhaps we'd better have a little chat
and I can try to make her understand.

It's hard to talk to her; I blush a lot;
my hands get clammy and my feet get cold;
my throat constricts so, and my face gets hot,
because I never have been very bold.

I can't just give her what her heart desires.
I've got to try to quench forbidden fires!

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
This is not a true-life situation. I just thought I would try my hand at the Shakespearean sonnet format.

Damn the 'forbidden fires' and drop on by. But do it when her hubby's out, and, for goodness sake, DON'T make her cry! ! bri ;)
