The pleasant mask you wear
And charm that you imbue
To all around of female persuasion
That suave façade both ensnares and frustrates
Your desired targets for the moment

You flit and flaunt and show your feathers
Preened meticulously to iridescent hue
The showy flash that you quickly dart
To another, hoping for a catch

But what is it that you might glean?
This romantic persona which bursts upon touch
Show your vulnerable and lonely heart
To the one you can entrust
