Maya In My Mind

by rondo

Maya in My Mind

Her name tag read Maya
And I thought it apropos
Because my a oh Maya
Is a girl a guy’d like to know
I mean that in the biblical sense
At first sight my head went centrifugal
And has not stopped spinning since
I think she wants me (I murmur to my pal)
He said: I thought you thought too much of yourself
But you’re a legend in your own mind now
To which I reply
Smiling with a winking eye
Yes I may be a legend in my own light
But at least it is somewhere and I know how to write
And this tale will have a happy ending
Where we play a game of cat and mouse
Then both stop pretending
And Maya leaves her digits
On the back of the receipt
And later I get to date her
And taste her love so sweet
It is a story or a legend
Perhaps a page that needed filled
But in this poem
Maya is the heroin
And takes me for a thrill

Oh My O Maya!! You must have immediately run off with her...

I hope the Margaritas are flowing wherever you are, Ron; sorry I wasn't there for your going away party. Drop me a line when you can, otherwise I'll catch up with you in Cabo by New Years. Lol!

Ole' and Aloha my friend - Mary Ann xoxoxo

Your poems are so dope lyrically. You could almost pass for a rapper except you have better grammar. Smile
