She was attractive, this good-looking bitch,
I'd have to say.
So why she hates me so much,
someone please tell me why, I pray.
Instead of being cool, she'd rather be a thorn in which
she pricks my softer side.
This girl I'd rather not touch
is a pain in my ass!--she's quite an obstacle, a real mean hitch!
Our feud and quarrel with one another are not denied,
but I'd just as soon throttle her as sleep with her
for being such a nasty, saucy, pugnacious creature.

Her attitude aside, I rather like her looks.
Blonde and blue-eyed, she's tall and built with breasts
of perfect size.
Hot and undoubtedly quite sexy, she's deep into the books
despite her looks. Of course, I'd be unwise
to paint her as some bimbo blonde, or to suggest
that she's good for just casual sex.
But I won't deign to tell just lies,--
I will do her if she does not objects.
Like any guy, I would love to get her undressed.

She's heavy into French, and while I'm more into English
and Lit, the irony does not escape me quite so utterly.
Ah! the French and the English,--
now there's no love lost between
those two states in history.
Peace between them in times of old has never been,--
their feud foreshadowed the affray we had in the refectory.
In line, as she drew up right beside me as I
was getting steak and fish,
she just with all of herself let me have it to the hilt!
I did not want a fight. But I was ready to shove my
tray down her little throat,--
I swear, this crabbed, unholy demoness
has no conscience or any guilt
when it comes to just getting my defenseless goat
with absolute and completely unmitigated ruthlessness!

I don't doubt that if she could have my head
removed and impaled on a steak
to be flame-roasted, cooked, and casually hand-fed
to hungry dogs, she would; or just presented by mistake
on a platter like the head of John the Baptist.
I must admit, this lovely, crazy girl perplexes me.
Either I'm a sado-masochist
or just a hopeless, contradictory, pseudo-romantic freak
who just refuses to completely see
that she's no Christian like she talks and pretends to be.
I try to figure her out,--
with everyone else she's perfectly
respectful, friendly and devout;
but with me she seems to betray split-personality.

She's a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma,
that girl! Perhaps too much hypocrisy
and false religiosity
has turned her into a nine-headed Hydra,--
a sexually repressed, uptight, crabbed bitch full of acerbity
and enmity
and fire, spleen, and spit.
If she were not so bent on being lethal as the Scylla,
I think that she and I could easily be intimate.
So until she decides to cast aside her phony
and pretentious animosity,
she'll always be just another--albeit
lovely--stupid girl who just will not submit.

I know how you feel
I enjoyed your own rhyme rhythm. Very free and infecting. Excellent way of a confession.

So, you wish to "throttle her"..and were "ready to shove (your) tray down her little throat"..But you would "do her.."

"I will do her if she does not objects." Hmmm.

France and England have been allies since the War of Greek Independence in 1827. They fought against Germany, as allies, in WWI and WWII. They are currently involved in the Libyan conflict, as NATO allies. This makes your "French" v "English" analogy kind of moot, being that your story appears present-day based.
You reference "history"..but the past 184 years are history, as well. Perhaps, you need a treaty with this girl. {smiling}

"She's a riddle wrapped..." This line is really cliche.

It doesn't sound like a "relationship."

re: I know how you feel
Thanks, Vickie!

Yeah, it really happened. I found her as attractive as she found me repulsive and impossible to not verbally attack. I guess she doth protests too much!

I hit send by mistake..before saying..Your frustration came through..but it made for a frustrating read, as well..

Sometimes it just isn't meant to be.

re: Apple
I would agree with you, Robert. It was no "relationship" at all--just more like "love-hate," especially on her part (for reasons only she knows or may not fully understand herself--women! go figure...).

her reason perhaps
warning - if you are already having a 'bad' day avoid reading this comment.

You sort of give it away in the last line .. I already knew the reasons why she wasn't smitten with you.

Perhaps when you mature, other than sexually, you'll read this and be embarrassed because of your attitude which mirrors your self-absorbed behavior here on this site.

Quite frankly - it's not all about you in any role you might want to play.

re: her reason perhaps
Pen, your response is typical. You judge the poet, but you fail to judge the work itself. I find that to be quite sad and regrettable. (But thanks for reading. I value your participation notwithstanding your vitriol.)

you are what you write
au contraire .. your comments validate my take on the poem which left me with mixed feelings of dislike and pity .. however, to placate you I left a 'rating' so you'll better understand that my comment was all about you which includes your writing..

we have an innate radar for men who are complete, at peace, and confident. If the men are also expert at the ping pong of intelligent conversation and humor, then -

- one of them might get *lucky* - not that it would be his goal. It would be his spiritual endeavor, and we would easily reward him for it.
