Poetic Attempts

Some people; they play hard to get.
I'm playing hard to want,
And ain't nobody got me yet,
That is my challenge taunt.

I'll grow myself a uni-brow,
And pack some extra pounds.
I'll never cut my toenails now.
I'll always make disgusting sounds.

Perhaps I'll never brush my teeth,
Or use deodorant.
My hair will poof; a fuzzy wreath.
Yes, I'm playing hard to want.

It's almost impossible to hide natural beauty, girl. I do , however, think that you've hidden your poetic talents for much too long!

I see the Shel Silverstein muse has hit, my dear. I agree with Peach: your natural beauty just won't be dimmed! And I smell your morning breath....

Love,

haha! I like this one... ;)
Sometimes when we try so hard to impress others we forget ourselves in the mess. I'd much rather you be yourself than what you think I want you to be. :)

P.S. I sympathize with not using deodorant...people smells don't really bother me...

It is just a poem.=D
