Not Love-Shy, But Clumsy

Rating: 5.0

I don't love well
I'm too kind...
The type easily blind,
The kind:
Thus hard to find.

This emotion is sickness
Maybe my greatest weakness,
Though I utter no slickness...
To this I stumble like weak-knees.

When I'm in love...
I fall in deep:
Like a stupid glove,
I lose my grip.

Between my head and my heart...
Sweet words, I mumble and scramble,
Me and love get drifted far and apart,
Love is a struggle or a fumble.

I panic in love:
I blow hot and freeze,
All my charming suave...
Seize to exist.

When in love, I become timid:
I can't smile neither do I jump for joy,
When in love, I'm clumsy and rigid,
Love please...teach me this ploy.

Gee, Kyvin, if you reacted, as illustrated, to a love-move from me, i think i'd run very quickly from the area, empty-handed and forlorn. : ) bri
