A Poem

I stared at myself intently
My reflection looking back at me
A heart to heart session in progress
This serious concern I must address

How could I have cold feet while alone
Dang socialization chills to the bone
Take the words from my mouth oh dear reflection
Make this short, my painful introspection

I do have bad breath, my date said so
As I started to undo her blouse's lasso
As my mouth probed hers, I thought it was a piece of cake
She pulled away and exclaimed, "for chrisses sake"

Now I continue to stare, my admission complete
My shoulders hunched, my depression quite deep
MY soul antsy, tears at the back of my eyes
I heaved a huge sigh and raised my toothbrush to the skies

And so I pledge to stay in my ivory tower
Until I get rid of this pungent, virulent oral power.
I shall brush my pearly whites every moment, every day
Someday I will kiss again. Someday. Someday.
