Shallow Hal

Shallow Hal is a poem I've created  for someone who was a little special to me. He can even be mistaken as my little brother because we kinda look alike, with the big brown eyes. That was love for me back then — years ago. The story's seem to be funny.

Shallow Hal

I used to swear before
And think that it’s really a sore
To fall for a younger boy
Who still keeps at least one toy.

It would really suck
I think it’s a real bad luck.
A cradlesnatcher gurl,
Holding the boy wrapped in fur.

I ate my words and swallowed them hard
I fell for you, my little lucky card
Against all odds, it seems.
But I don’t care; I would just beam.

You’re one cute guy
I wanna be with you, oh my.
Age and height we really oppose
But all we need is a tricky pose.

I hope all this is true
And not shatter or make me blue
Mom says Im one real smart gal,
But in love, I’m one shallow hal.

Well, Dame, you had some fun with this one. From this day forth, you will be known as a cradle snatcher.

This is so cute. My favorite line is "Age and height we really oppose
But all we need is a tricky pose".

Thanks for sharing.
