Pamper-Her-Friday by Rg2® 324: ‘Romance is a Yes Away’: ‘A Summer’s Romance’ Collection by Rg2 (88)

“Romance is a ‘Yes’ Away”

It’s as if you’re fighting your inner permission
A tortured refusal to oblige my midsummer ask,
Be advised: I’ve the stamina to weather lovers’ attrition
The last romantic standing? Woman, I’m up for the task

I’ve poured myself a zinfandel as I develop this ode
Each man should take time to write to her in solitude,
A mental gander of your face on a wall of my abode
You’ve stirred within me an intensely rhapsodic mood

Have you ever been to Niagara Falls, Canada-side?
The playful mist-drench from the belly of the showers,
There’s romance in the cascading downpour I confide
Could I simply hold you there, in nature’s midst, on hours

A waterfall chase I’m not exactly suggesting we engage
But it’s mystical when water from above meets its floor,
The symphonic roar of that hydro-war sets the stage
for a summer chemistry neither of us has had before

But you’re afraid, I detect, rather reluctantly afraid
Everything in your native power to avoid a yes,
I commend you the strict self-guarding you’ve obeyed
If I represent the third suitor of three risks—I’m the less

And you know it, woman, every ounce of you knows it
There’s reason you haven’t rid your psychology of me,
This living, breathing, intriguing scribe-turned-romantic
My instinct has signaled your restrained inner plea

You, yes, you, woman, you’re absolutely no bit o’ good
to those hat-tossers, social-followers and hapless rose-senders,
None of them is closer to your heart than should
be the one and only writer whose unrivaled tenders

Honor you, so fond of you, I wanna magic wand you
Into the boxcar-deluxe right next to me to Toronto,
The international shoppes we’ll splurge more than a few
They’ll admire the chemistry between the lady and her beau

We’ll make our way to the pristine Northwest territories
Where Mountain Province Diamonds is among the miners,
Rare Earth-produced gems are the stuff of untold stories
Choose one, raw and uncut, I’ll commission the designers

But it’s as if you’re fighting your inner permission
Denying or self-sabotaging(?) our summer’s getaway,
When you’re ready, I’m patient, when you’re truly ready
The waterfalls are most beautiful on Pamper-Her-Friday.
