‘If you asked me…’

If you asked me why do I dance

Without a glance

I would tell you I’ve had a bad romance


If you asked me why do I sing

Without a blink

I would tell you there’s nothing left to bring


If you asked me why do I hum

Like a drum

I would tell you I have to cram


If you asked me why do I run

With a gun

I would tell you I’m having fun


If you asked me why do I play

With your day

I would tell you: ‘what can I say?’


But what I know

Is that you won’t show

Any interest’s flow

  1. I hope that person asked because I heard you if they didn’t.

    Good emotional statement.

  2. Scent of my heart

    Oh, that was beautiful. Loved the game of words, questions beautifully asked and answers interesting to read! Happy Potluck!

  3. I like the flow of this one, the rhymes are very effective.
    The last stanza is nicely sad and gived the poem an edge. Well done!

  8. I enjoy to occasional slant rhyme

  9. I have sung similar songs
    but no one cares to tag along
    unless you act too aloof at times
    that’s when people wonder,
    what you upto , so carefree in life …
