The Dating Game
Mysterious Enigmas From the start, Social profiles Dictate who we are, Searching For red flags From afar.
Texting each other Back and forth, The talking stage We know of course, Meet within a week A rule I endors, To avoid the cap Show no remorse.
Remember Its trial and error, Avoid the same mistakes Never mirror, Less is more Ease off the lever, repeat it back For good measure.
Bait the hook To suit the fish, She either likes Horoscopes, Star signs Or Myers Briggs.
I'd rather listen to life in person, Have our words lead off to an excursion, Unravel gem’s & truths behind hidden curtains.
One on one In a booth, Two between a carafe Keeping in Chenin blanc, Turning giggles into laughs And now its, Open sesame.
Undercover chocolate lover, Sweet tooth Like no other,
I Discreetly told the doc It was dangerously delectable, Cravings causing quite a spectacle, Temptation always orbiting in a galaxy by the milky way.
The Doc diagnosed Delirious chocolate fever! Side effects include endorphins going into seizure, But declared everything is going to be Kinda Beano.
Diabetes might creep up on me, Dare I say shotgun Ready, Double twix up my sleeve Life is like a box of chocolate, You never know what your going to receive.
Motivation embedded in the cogs, Believing in signs and symbols of, Managing 11 thoughts And man of the match Only goes to one.
Learning for fun, Challenge after challenge, Realizing the mundane time consuming, Requires no attention to be managed.
Plotting everyday in advance, Guarantees a choice or a chance, Hoping to avoid The 50/50 dreaded dance.
Making lists the night before, Cementing the plan Keeping it secure, Beyond the fantasy Subconsciously letting it mature.
Plan, prepare, execute With a sense of urgency, Because every minute counts Before you meet uncertainty.
Fancy a cuppa
A good cup of tea can settle me down, Restart my day Bring it right around,
Soak well through Sacreligious not to let it brew, Back to back it pays its dues, Add in some milk And contrast is up to you.
Searching for a spoon Wheeling and stirring, Blending and surfing, Pouring in some sugar Keeping it sweet and perfect.
I can flip it calm down with Jasmin, Oolong, Lishan Too, Head back, Head on lap, Real big mood.
Can be had at morning till next noon Even after dinner, Never goes out of style I call every cup a winner.
Let the Chaos ensue, With the calories I consume, Snacking at midnight when the belly rumbles At full moon, Waking up with a double chin, Only one can presume, Every bite is a disco Self control in limbo Tastebuds explored like columbus And no shame here When the food arrives I'll shout bingo
Two sides of a coin
Between every two Live two different worlds Two different livelihoods On two different scales Two different perspectives Neither wrong As each make sense to themselves Two different routes One may flourish One may derail One may anguish One may prevail Flip a coin Heads Or Tails ?
