Vanessa was 
the college campus beauty queen
and she'd set 
her brown eyes on me
We were both 
captivated at first sight
two love birds 
as happy as could be
Vanessa had a beautiful body
just to look at her 
would make me high
And my mind
it was taking me places
that were dangerous
I can not deny

By Thanksgiving 
I had bought the ring
traveled to West Virginia 
to meet her mom
Her dad had split 
when she was young
it'd been years 
since they’d seen Tom
I was so excited
I almost wet my pants
Vanessa and me 
were finally at her house
This girl
she looked like Heaven's angel
in her sheer 
almost see through blouse

Up the stairs 
we stood at the front door
a final look 
and she winked with her lash
Her mom came 
and she opened the door
she stood there 
sporting a thick mustache
Filled with pure panic 
that I couldn't hide
I saw a coming hint 
above Vanessa's lip
When they went 
into the kitchen for tea
it was my chance 
and I gave them the slip

~Lyric Man

Note: Just a little fun write that’s mostly true. Call me shallow, I know.. but a girls gonna look like her mom one day ;). I was young and scared. I fled from ole Vanessa and never looked back.(We were not actually engaged).

You always have a way of capturing the reader in the first two lines, once I start reading your work, no matter what its length I must finish it---and always glad I did---Best of Luck my friend

Well, that, Lyric Man, I must say, must have been a "hair raising" experience. Hope it wasn't a "handlebar"...

Hilarious ending, Lyric Man. I am dying here and I should not be, as I am sneaking a peek at work.

Ha! You are right, doctor! The girl turns into her mother, just as the man turns into his father … Interestingly, I just saw the sister of my ex, and OMG! She was the image of her mother, only moreso. Chilling, believe me! Best wishes, Gershon
