Double Blind

Ugly Couple

Casual acquaintance is easily defined
As to not really knowing what’s on their mind
Toeing the ground smiling and looking so demure
With all it can take me I hold back a sneer

Double dating is hell fittingly describes
Mutual declension makes pittance the bribe
With future dealings new pictures required
I’ll be dammed without it that I’ll be conspired

    • Only happened twice. No good from either experience. Sometimes a current picture just isn’t enough. It was OK though, each time the feelings were mutual. smiles..
