Poetry Corner:How Do You Like Me So Far

By Richard Wallace

How do you like me so far?

Do I meet your expectations?

Most of them?

Did I smile enough?

Did I listen enough?

How do you like me so far?

*****

How do you feel about me so far?

Was my dress all right?

Not too tight around my bottom?

Did my figure suit your notions?

Sorry, I don’t have a push up bra.

How do you feel about me so far?

*****

Do you think you’ll want to see me again?

I hope so, but I’m not so sure myself.

Nothing personal of course.

Do I want to go down this road again?

The rule of three has worn a little thin.

Do you think you’ll want to see me again?

*****

So, you say you like me.

I can see anticipation in your eyes.

Is it me you care about?

This is our third date.

Is this where I am supposed to say

your place or mine?

*****

So, how do you like me…so far?

the lovers

By Henri-Jean Guillaume Martin

  1. Again, you’ve caught it Richard.
    Being old has its advantages, one of them being – it’s so good not to bother about all that stuff!
    To quote John Lennon in ‘Borrowed Time’……………..

    “Does she really love me
    All that crap
    But now I don’t bother about that shit no more
    I know she loves me
    All I gotta bother about is standing up”

  2. Bernie\bell…I love to hear from you. Right…How do you like me so far. That was written with a special friend in mind and I couldn’t help but think what a dreadful waste of energy…but then she isn’t 75. Have a great day and thank you….Richard
