I Misunderstood

The most beautiful lady refused my love.
I saw her looking at me provocatively.
My heart leapt when I beheld such beauty.
She showed signs of affection for me.
And I anxiously want to speak to her.
I was confused, so I was bound to fall in a trap.

I politely introduced myself to her,
And she gladly told me her first name.
My self-confidence was too high,
So I asked the lady out on a date.
I didn’t think she’d turn down my request,
But I was wrong about everything.

My wild emotion and imagination led me falsely.
I thought the lady had a crush on me.
On the contrary, she emphatically said, “No.”
She shattered my hope of becoming her suitor.
I felt so dejected, lost, and incomplete.

Her response gave me a sad feeling.
She didn’t feel the same way about me.
What a pity she couldn’t see my heart.
She unintentionally tore it apart.
I’d have collected the bits and pieces,
But I just didn’t know where to start.

Perhaps she thought I insulted her intelligence,
But that idea didn’t come up in my mind.
She might have stayed a little longer,
But she left because I asked her if she loved me.
I looked abashed when she shook her head.

She only wanted a friendly conversation.
Clearly, I misunderstood the situation.
My rash attempt resulted in embarrassment.
I took the wrong approach to love.
The next time I meet a lady, I’ll use tactful words.
