One More Try for Love

Courage is fleeting
I don’t know why
I’m stuck in the corner
Afraid to try.

Tears are a waste
As night passes slowly
I’ll go out tomorrow
Forget feeling lonely.

Men come and go
Dates seldom work
I’ll wait for right one
Instead of a jerk.

Forget the diet
Bring me the bread
And chocolate and wine till I’m
Light in the head.

Keep my chin up
There’ll come a time
When singing and dancing
And fun will be mine.

Love don’t come easy
That is no lie
Yes, I have the courage
To give it one more try.

Why Romney Never had a Chance

I figured it out. 
It took quite a while. 
It was more than his words
It was the tone of his smile. 

Rather than glisten
With childlike glee
His eyes revealed pain
When they should have crinkled 
You see. 

Eyes tell the story
Far more than words. 
His eyes remained steadfast
Defying his blurbs. 

While his lips turned upwards
Portraying joke or joy
His brow-line remained planted
As if disdain was his ploy. 

Only once did I detect 
A twinkle of joy
On the occasion of loving
His wife, grandchild or boys.
