The Honeymoon Suite

The Honeymoon Suite

the last thing I expected 

was for this to last

beyond the first blush brush of heat

so when I found myself

looking around a room 

I didn’t know I’d entered

I was caught off guard

 

while you 

remained unaware 

as if this sort of thing

happened so often

it hadn’t drawn your attention

I wasn’t all that concerned

with finding a way out

but wanted one 

that would take me deeper

No No No

Who knew the simple life could be so complex.

No

no thank you

I’m just not that hungry

I’ve learned to say no

to what I don’t want

it has nothing to do with you

it’s not something I would

ordinarily eat anyway

I’m watching my weight

my intake

so no thank you

I’m really not hungry

I had a snack earlier

yes it looks good

but no thank you

 

why can’t you take no for an answer

no I won’t want it later

I realize all the work you put into it

the time it took

that you planned this specially for me

I am pleased by the efforts you took

but that’s not enough

to make me want to eat

what I don’t want to eat

 

I know where that compliance leads to

so I’m saying no now

I won’t be pressured

no doesn’t mean open for negotiation

if I let you talk me into this

and you’ll think

you can talk me into anything

that you can coax me

into doing things I don’t want to do

even those harmless things

 

so this no is relevant

so no thank you
