Evanescent

The moment I met her she robbed me of sense

I thought that I loved her but she was a flirt

Who talked a good game that was all a pretence

Served up the hors d’oeuvres but avoided dessert

 

So curvy and carefree, she brightened each day

Her joy evanescent like scent on the breeze

But all my illusions were soon washed away

As her words like a knife cut me off at the knees

 

The pledges of lovers are fleeting and brief

Like waves on the sand or like smoke on the wind

Aphrodite’s a fraud and Cupid’s a thief

And ephemeral promises quick to rescind

So you never reached the port, (in more ways than one)?
Agree with Taylor about the rythm. Glad to hear you didn't suffer any permanent physical damage from the freezer!

Thanks all. ?

But Rose, the loose women are more fun than the LOOSE WOMEN, and I avoid 'reality' shows like the plague!
