Bless your Heart:

(Or the lack thereof)

You flirted with me all night long,
You cheeky little thing.

Your sweet little whispers were so faint
I could scarcely make them out 

Tossing and turning I searched for you, 
First on one side and then another.  

I searched the refrigerator for you,
And even searched my phone. 
You were not there.  

I knitted my love for you in garter stitch 
and in mitered square 
Still, you refused to meet me.   

I had such high hopes for you.  

We've had a lifetime together. 
Our history, our bond, our relationship
I thought it was enough for you. 

But it wasn't.   

I once called you my beloved
But now I know you are just a "Floosie"

Linda Lee, Stoneybrooke
