she asked me how?

She asked me how
she could love me
I told her
“without trying
would be nice”
in fact, come
to think of it
that not bad
advice.
If you have
to think about it
please not when
I’am around
just take me
as you find me
and lay me on
the ground
and read
me a little
nugget
or tell me
some wild
tale
and play
roundy roundy
garden
with your
painted
finger nail.
Bring me to a bar
where sailors
like to go
where the toilets
smell like hell
but the conversations flow
bring me home
when I’ve drunk too much
and pour me into bed
and only remember
the nice things
when stumbling home
I said
be strict
when I get passionate
tell me gently to slow down
and tell me when to come up
for air, if i forget I might just drown
now that would be a nice obituary
“drowned while having fun”
the coroner said the evidence was clear
he found my smoking gun.
But seriously love is a thing
you cannot really plan
its just a little chemistry
between a woman and a man
sometimes magic happens
but more often theres no spark
and you walk the plank home alone
listening to the sniggering of a mongrels bark.
