Implicit Consent


                          I'll be the last to see your guise
                          a reason to love and be wise
                          slow on the uptake... slow

                          I'll ignore excuses, delays
                          your lost smile and your silent gaze
                          I'll never know, never know

    Those last two lines are really something to contemplate. I really liked reading this. I've never written a tail rhyme before, so I dunno how the structure goes and what not, but it sounds great to me. : ) Always, Laura

    So much said in so few words. With women sometimes its best that we never know. I suspect they often find we men hideous because of our natural crudeness! A7 and love this presentation..

    Are women really that mysterious Ruben? I agree we are hard to know at times because what we say may not be what we mean. Tough situation to deal with.

    Yes, the idea was wipe away; I took the conjunction "and" and replaced it for "ignore." I want to make you happy! : D Thank you for your help!
