Too Far To Get Someone

Rating: 4.5
I don't see anything attractive!
Not a thing to keep me busy.
Nothing as a gadget either.
No remote or a sign of a frisbee.
No TV or radio.
Or music played from a stereo?
Not even an instrument or a piece of art,
Hanging around.
This is rather stark!
This moment is profound.
No floral arrangements or magazines...
Nor a clock or a calendar to be found!
And you sent messages to me...
On your PC...
How delighted we would be discovering an 'e-mailed' love!
One meant to be?

But you left out more than one important fact...
You said you had a Tabby cat.
And I can't see why a roach,
Would want to approach this place at night!
Even cats love to play with that.
A mouse or a rat would snore in here!
It's clear some lies have flown.

I might have lied when I said to you...
I was blond and muscular and six feet two!
But you went much too far to get someone,
To join you behind these walls.
For some 'realtime' fun?
I can't believe I fell for this!
And you're no Halle Berry either!
Why didn't you tell me...
You were more like Butterfly McQueen! ?
And I would have found it fit to sing,
On my banjo for this 'visit'!

Ah Lawrence, the vagaries of ethereal love given flesh. Empty promises filling empty shells. Never been there. Ain't never goin now! !
