Mixed Messages!


Lipstick used to make a symbolic kiss.

Don’t be
messing with little girls now,

They’ll be
running, they’ll be crying, they’ll be telling,

Stop! Don’t!
Leave them alone!

Don’t be
kissing little girls then,

They’ll be
running, they’ll be smiling, they’ll still be telling,

Don’t! Stop!
Leave them alone!

Don’t be
messing with big girls now,

They’re not
running, they’ve been changing, now they’re waiting,

Stop! Don’t!
What are you thinking?

Don’t be
kissing those big girls now,

They’ll do
the catching because they’ve been scheming,

Stop! Don’t
stop! What were you dreaming?

If those
kisses you wanted turned out to be teasing,

And thoughts
of tomorrow are delightfully pleasing,

Don’t stop!
Don’t let her get away!

You’ll be caught
by one you thought you were chasing,

Captured by
the mixed messages you were receiving,

Don’t
stop!  Your world is just beginning!

Start! Don’t
stop! Love keeps the world turning,

Don’t stop
loving!  Don’t stop living!

Don’t stop!
Keep on giving!

Don’t stop!

    1. I will tell you I am doing well, that I’m as healthy as a 20 year old, enjoy being alone and lonely, have no financial problems, keep bees, tutor students, and love to write. The last three are true. As for Mixed Messages, the poem popped out while I was trying to write a different poem. I appreciate your comments and thanks for your visit. Now, how are you doing? I’m all talked out and ready to listen.

      May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!

    1. I always say I’m doing well. But I write too slow to get all the poems and stories down that are waiting in the wings for their turn to shine. I’m glad you got a smile from my poem and I hope I’ll be able to write a few more years and get chuckles and laughs.

      May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!

  1. Seemingly a simplistic way of the treatment of love, I find it the opposite. A deep thinking message this is. Yes, the ladies must be treated with respect to give love a chance. Brilliant piece!
