I’ve written this poem in response to the following word prompts:
You are planning a new dalliance
But let me give you some advice,
although it may seem like salience
and at the time it feels quite nice.
But it leaves you feeling rather flat
I’m trying not to be dogmatic,
I just don’t want you feeling like that,
With your love-life remaining static.
Why not try for a longer romance
Something poignant, then you might see
If you give this caring guy a chance,
A completely new side of me.
