If your thought is to impress him
With words you know are not your own
I suggest a bit more practice
Than the brazen effort you’ve shown
To capture a lover’s passion with words
Is just the shape of the art
He knows the touch and timbre
Of words written from my heart
A borrowed word or turn of phrase
Won’t fool his eyes and can’t replace
You may think you’re being clever
With sleight of pen to try to sever
One cannot mimic what is not
Copying words but not the thought
So please abandon this poetic ruse
A man’s heart knows his one true muse

I’m all about the asides this week. Here’s one that’s a broadside aside:
I put as much effort in to bylines, taglines and my signature advertising style as I do into my written work and fibre art pieces.
I don’t like seeing them cadged without a so much as a by-your-leave.

Pick me up for Heaven’s sakes. Aren’t I your Babycakes? Don’t fall for little fakes… Daintier, smarter, better dressed…
When you hold him in your arms, that scent you love is me
He might see you once in a while, doesn’t matter to me
He might look at your body but his heart sees me
What you should know is, he always comes back to me
You’re just a different flavour, so it doesn’t bother me
Where’s your pride? Spend your time trying to be like me
Think you’re smart with your second-hand repartée
You’re wasting your time; he always comes back to me
Sad to watch you, trying to be something you’ll never be
Think nobody notices what you try to steal from me
He fell in love with the real thing, so live your little fantasy
The most you can do is borrow, he always comes back to me
Some of us can’t be tied, need a little variety
From the moment we met, that’s the way for him and me
The taste you love on his lips, that will always be me
Loved me since we were kids, he always comes back to me
So when you’re holding my man and you think he’ll leave me
Keep in mind, you’re not the first who tried to imitate me
You can try but you’ll cry be prepared to stay lonely
Cause what it was, what it is, His heart belongs to me

“I’ve reached a point in my life where it’s the little things that matter…
I was always a rebel and probably could have got much farther had I changed my attitude.
But when you think about it, I got pretty far without changing attitudes. I’m happier with that.”
