Favorite Quote:
'Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, who am i to be beautiful, gorgeous or talented? Actually, who are you not to be?' Nelson Mandela 1932

In all my life, i have never seen
A man so smooth and yet so keen.
The time you spend sharing your views
We could have spent on Boulogne Rouge
Dining with love, from now to noon
Then strolling the beach in the glowing moon.
But no, here we are in this solemn room,
My ears forced to hear your arrogant tune
To forget love and skip to sex
because, and i quote 'that's whats best'.
Well to your misfortune, love is more than just fun,
There will be no burning skin or running sun.

The author's comments:
I was inspired to write this poem when i read the famous peom 'To his coy mistress' by Andrew Marvell. His poem is basically him trying to persuade his mistress to have sex with him as soon as possible instead of getting to know eachother first. I decided to do a reply.
