Creative Writing: “I Was Never a One Night Stand Kind of Man”

I dare you to look me in my eyes,

And tell me that I am beautiful,

My mother used to say that they will love you for what’s on the inside,

But all there is, is blood and guts,

So I don’t think that’ll end well.

For warning I’m not a big shot,

But I can split the crescent with a personality ambush,

Tell me I am full of flaws,

But describe how I can win your affection,

Without Kamikaze landing in your front door,

Fix my broken wings darling,

Or I’ll have to walk away without confidence,

I am ashamed that I hold a grudge on others,

For winning the affection of your heart,

Filled with stomach cramping nausea,

From all the sharks you’re catching and releasing my interest.

I dare you to look away from my eyes,

And tell me that I am ugly,

My mother used to say that they will love you for what’s on the outside,

But all there is, is skin and pores,

So I don’t think that’ll end well.

Stop your water fall,

It’s only dripping for the ones who crave for a tasteless joy ride,

Down town you are known to be looser,

Than the red light district,

On a New Year’s celebration,

For heaven’s sake give up the life of a shooting star blown up,

In every one’s perception,

I will be here to give you lessons on how to live,

Without letting tidal waves sink your treasure chest,

As long as you give me the key,

I will ensure you that we will hold each other,

Above these misguided heart thieves.

I dream that you will look me in my eyes,

And tell me that you have changed,

Into a phoenix that has been re-born,

In the sheets you once grazed in,

My mother used to say that they will love you

For what’s on your grave stone,

But all there is, is mold and faint chiseled words,

So I don’t think that’ll end well.
