I Have To Get Myself Free

As the Miami Beach sun was hot, you said that I was lying in your spot. You got my attention from that very first look. Just one short glance was all it took. You have many good things my wife hasn’t got. I have determined Layla really doesn’t have a lot. What a hasty and impetuous move I would make. I realize now that marriage was a mistake. In your trap you have ensnared me. What a complete young woman I see! Somehow, someway, I should get myself free. I must break these bonds of matrimony. How did I ever get stuck in a situation like this? With you, I can have a lifetime of marital bliss. I intend to follow you out to Minneapolis. I will take this opportunity and seal it with a kiss. Based on the 1972 film “The Heartbreak Kid”

    Hi Robert; This is good, but I'm glad it was only an inspiration from a movie and not happening to you. thanks for sahring. What killed Curly? Well we found out later some lady down the street had poisoned him. I later had another one and he was killed by some kids. I too don't have anymore pets..... Lucilla

    oh gosh, was the film that long ago? Now I feel so old. I don't remember it very well but your poem helps me recall it somewhat. Good one!
