Roses are red
Violets are blue
I saw you online
Then I messaged you

Where do we start?
Your smile ... your eyes
Or your heart?

I'm just your average guy
Who's looking for a chance
Will you accept this message
Like it's our first dance?

Ok, as I mentioned, Helen and I are still talking. This is like the old days when she fed me inspiration for my country songs. So, taking up the challenge I replied:

Oh, puke.

After all, now that I’m a poet, I have a great command of the English Language.

LOL - totally expected that as your rx.

Ah, now I’m totally predictable. No wonder she won’t marry me.

I saw you online.
I had to message you.
Your smile,
Your eyes,
Your heart.
Although I'm just an average guy,
Is there any chance
That you will accept this message
And step out to our first dance?

I mean, how hard is that? Or does he get the girl because he was cute and tried, but the real poet gets ignored. It will be another night of drinking.

OK.......your re-write is much better.

And with that I have scored 0 points. But maybe I have discovered a new business opportunity: Poetry Makeovers
