The Pursuit

Where is it now that I put my heart
The last time I took a break from love
I remembered thinking I wouldn’t need it for awhile
So I put it in a place high above

I feel so silly now
I mean it’s so important
And I knew I would need it again
But I was trying to be logical
And I wasn’t ready  
With my heart to contend

I don’t know, maybe it’s a sign
And I’ll just leave it hidden away
It’d be so much easier if that dreamy voice
Wasn’t always purposed my way

Gosh if only you knew
Dag gone I bet you do
How when you lean in close for affect
The breath of your whispers
Leave me completely unglued 
When they gently caress my neck

Oh men! I can’t stand ‘em
See that squint in my eye
And my nose pointed up in the air
My arms are folded and I’m quite determined
Then you turn and catch my stare

Oh Geez! I used to be much better at this
You ask for my number to phone
I give it to you willingly 
But for three days
 I 
   Will
           Not
                 Be 
                     Home!

    "The breath of your whispers leave me completely unglued." Cracked me up. Maybe you were being serious, Laurie, but if so I like your unconscious sense of humor. Love, daver

    This one gave me a chuckle this morning! Men... can't live with them, can't live without them! haha I loved this one, the 4th stanza really got me though (these men, they know exactly what they're doing! haha) and the way you ended it was just perfect! Awesome write! :) Love, Amy

    Ha ha! I used to do that not being home/very busy thing - with my husband - so I guess it worked! This is too awesome! Love, Shar

    This one gave me a chuckle, even as frustating as it makes the subject...the 2nd guessing, the (wondering if it's worth it?) attitude!! Puts a smile on my face! Great job, Laurie!~ love, Carrie
