Crazy Little Thing Called Love

by another jim

Love Bites Contest Winner 
Each moment spent together
Is better than the last
The past few weeks have flown right by
The time just goes so fast

You know I love you, honey
I tell you so each day
The voices in my head are sure
You also feel that way

I see it in your gestures
I hear it in your screams
And that reminds me: Your restraints
Need tightening, it seems

I guess I just don't get it
That terror in your face
I didn't think my basement floor
Was such an awful place

I swept away the cinders
The blanket's soft and clean
I feed you Chinese twice a week
(Your favorite cuisine!)

You run in place on Tuesdays
I know you watch your weight
On Sundays there's that wake-up show
The one that's on at eight?

We dance together nightly
Sweet music fills the air
We waltz the floor in love's embrace
Like Rogers and Astaire

But lately when I kiss you
You never kiss me back
I sense your mind is somewhere else
That something's out of whack

Oh, please don't start the begging
I'll never let you go
And if you say you want to leave
My answer's simple: No

I thought we had a deal
It sounded fair to me
I'd loosen up the manacles
You promised not to flee

But yesterday I caught you
My cell phone in your hand
I must have dropped it carelessly
Now, what did you have planned?

I've figured out the answer
You could have simply said
"I'm sick of Chinese! Can't we eat
Italian instead?"

I know, it's just plain silly
A first-time lovers' spat
If take-out pasta's what you want
I'm really fine with that

So now, before I gag you
And recheck every tie
Just kiss me like you mean it, girl
And tell me I'm your guy
