Poem: Blind Date, Take Two


Sheepishly saying no,
Silently saying yes.
Maybe I should go,
He might pass the test.

His name was Joe,
Showed up in his Sunday best.
A striking polka dot bow,
Combined with a yellow vest.

Superficial? Me? No!
Neither am I blind. Yes?
Fine, I’ll let the outfit go,
But dude keeps staring at my breasts!

Sheepishly saying oh no,
Silently saying oh yes!
I can’t bloody wait to go,
Back home alone to rest!



I thought it was coffee
I am so gonna kill my mate
Just how could he?
Knowing how I hate blind dates

I thought it was coffee
So I went after the curtains came down
Just how could he?
Knowing I’d show up dressed as a clown.

I thought it was coffee
Why is she dressed like this?
Just how could she?
Knowing I would stare at her tits!


Note: This poetic guest post is by a talented individual who has never been published…until today. It is an honour and pleasure to be the first to host her poem. Pao, (her pen name) was inspired to compose a few verses after reading my previous post, The Blind Date. I love what she has done here – presenting two sides of the story. Because in life, there are always two versions of a story. The woman’s perspective may differ greatly from the man’s. This is where the “misunderstanding” arises.

I sincerely hope to see more poetic creations from Pao. Thank you so much, Pao. 🙂

Being Afraid Is Human, But Staying Afraid Is A Choice.

    I just had a blind date last Friday afternoon. It was coffee and while he was telling me about his basement apartment I was trying to think of something that would turn him off me.

    Have a look at this blog if you don’t already know it:


    Have a happy day. 🙂

        Do check out her blog. I am reading her e-book The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass. It’s fun and very uplifting. You would like it, I’m sure. 🙂

    Funny. It’s okay to appreciate the human body, just need to know when to hold back a bit. First dates can be so awkward. It’s a miracle sometimes how we end up mating in the first place.
