The Girls

you look like a couple of girls
I’d hoped to love.
I couldn’t find it in me
to succeed with either of them
but with you, maybe,
it could be different.

The first one,
we sniffed and snickered around each other
wondering just what we could mean,
but when she went off with another guy,
I couldn’t find it in myself to continue.

The next wanted to move in,
at least for a weekend,
and I wasn’t ready
for such a commitment.
With you, though,
I think it would be easy.
Give me a chance.
I’m not as bad as I was back then.

I wanted to love
two women very much like you.
I can’t help but hope
that the third time
will be the charm.
