The Me he hasn't met yet

"How perfect for you!" they exclaim
Describing a man not mine
And I smile politely as they quote the features
Stuff of which I can not stand
"Shall we arrange for your meeting?"
I say, "I hope so" but smirk
Cause my real man is out there still
Smirking at someone arranging for him
Shaking his head as he picks up a pen
And writes a poem about the me he hasn't met yet

The author's comments:
I wrote this poem after someone was trying to match make for me. :P No thanks. I don't need any blind dates. My man is out there, and if he's waiting for me so far, then I'll show a little patience and wait for him too.

I love this! Just the thought of both of you in harmony, both laughing and shaking your heads at the same time but in different places, both writing...makes my heart flutter :) Nice job!
