Convincing outliers

We remember the exception
Not the rule
Despite all the good things
And all the kind people
It's the one asshole
That sticks in our memory.

Mr. Yum

Oh, you fickle flirt
You made me feel good
With your sexy words
But only in passing

My teenage reaction
To your digital visage
Left me wanting more
I want to eat you up

But I guess I'm too bold
Scaring away the skittish
With my forward demand
To see you in person

In this shallow pond
You may be a catfish
A sexy illusion
But my hunger is real

I'm not up for the game
Virtual affection can't satisfy
Must have my cake
And eat it too

I suppose that's my purpose
If you're not bold enough
To stand beside me
Then best you run now.

First moves

There is no pine in me
I do not wait around
For the move of another
I surge forward
And fail where I may

Yearning seems futile
Why not ask the question
True answers dont falter
And I'd rather stand alone
Than not be wanted

There is little tact in me
I corageously blunder
Blurt out my intent
Let the awkward sprout
See what will bloom

Often I am rejected
This is a game of many losses
One you can't win unless you play
So I keep failing
So I keep trying

I won't know the answer
Without asking the question
I fear the silence
More than rejection
So in ask

Do you want me?
