WOOING REBECCA [for Rebecca Effiong Okon who hates Poetry]

Wooing REBECCA who hates Poetry...

Wooing REBECCA who hates Poetry…

I met a damsel named Rebecca
Who has the face of an angel sent from heaven.
Now I’m hoping she’s not a heart breaker
…Because she’s got me thinking of her 24/7!

Alas, my Rebecca loves not poetry
And her ears sway not for flowery words.
But then my words are not flattery,
Concocted to bind her heart with cords.

Someone tell me how to breach her heart,
Tell me how to make words melt her metal wall.
Tell me where her heart’s hidden path
Lies. So I can make her heed my earnest call!

Maybe I should rhyme a smiling Sun,
Make the wind hum a rhythm of stricken souls,
Conjure a palace, and make puns
That’ll make her fidget on her tender toes?

Someone tell me, please,
That my soul may find sweet release.

          Really, are you a lady? Would write a poem for you if I can see a picture of you…thats all I need.

          • mindingmyownfort says

            Yes I am a lady.

          • Kukogho Samson says

            i see only flowers. Are you on facebook? let me peek at a photo of you.

          • mindingmyownfort says

            No Facebook I have no need to put myself on Facebook. I could send you any pic and say its me, so does my face really matter? No I am the flower. I am open. I like floral poems.

          • Kukogho Samson says

            Okay, lets see how that works…you like flower poems.

          • mindingmyownfort says

            I have learnt my lesson with Facebook, I don’t need a shitload of false friends who comment about you on each others pages; especially when they are family members who could care less if your dead or alive. Sorry but Facebook has left a really bad taste in my mouth.

          • Kukogho Samson says

            I understand…so I wrote you a poem that I would like you to read…but I wouldnt want it posted here as a comment for everyone to see.

            Where should that go? An email?

            You are marvelously talented. You sure know how to turn a girl’s head.

          • Kukogho Samson says

            Awww.. I am honored. I’ll take that to mean you like that poem. Thanks for the endorsement.

          • mindingmyownfort says

            I sent you an email.

          • Kukogho Samson says
