To Get Her

Be Playful
But not immature

Exude strength
But don’t overbear

Show interest
Nothing shallow though

Bond for real
Not for nuts

Practice faith
And lose fiction

Don’t say love
And live otherwise

Shed the weapons. They no longer serve you.
Be her protector.

Therein lies your purpose and your secure escape.

That’s how you grow together.
