Date For One

Tonight’s date was an interesting bird
One I’ve never really come Accross before
With a body of a god and a face like a nerd
I was curious to see what else was in store

I’m really not sure what I think of this one
He spent most of the night looking elsewhere
I didn’t know if he would cut and run
Or show me some sign he was mentally there

Maybe it’s a respect level I’ve grown accustomed to
He doesn’t seem to know what communication is
It comes with age and having as many dates as I do
That requires my company to have some insightfulness

He just kept talking about himself
Like he was giving me his resume stats
I’d rather just pull his biography off the shelf
Then to have to endure another second of his act

It’s like he would talk just to hear himself speak
Not saying anything of importance about himself
I said nothing as he would not let me get in a peep
He kept discussing any topic for which he chose to delve

I played with my straw and sat stirring invisible ice
I cleaned the cracks in the table with my thumb
I did all this as I looked him straight in the eyes
I needed to do something I was so bored I was numb

I wanted him to know I was listening to him
And all the dribble that escaped his lips
I hoped at some point his questions to me would begin
But I was unable to even let out a few quips

The date was nothing like I hoped it would be
It was a lesson to see how far back my ear would bend
He loved himself too much to get to know me
It was a date for one and I couldn’t wait for it to end
