What if I gave you a bouquet
every time I thought of you,
or waited for the moon to hang
nice and full, and belted my best aria,
a song about love, its weird way
of looking the same as always
no matter who is involved?

I suppose I could just ask --
what is it that makes you blush,
feel red and warmhearted,
ready to take my hand
and rush out of sight,
some shaded corner
where love can be made
in hurried, but meaningful bursts?

I’ll save the flowers,
use them as most men do,
as an apology
for all the things I said,
even if I’m not quite sure what it was.
