Effort Required

It doesn’t matter who it is,
If someone smiles at me
I become emotionally attached.

But over the last four weeks,
I have been being taught,
How to gradually detach.

So I’m sorry to have to tell you,
My darling Mr Trouble,
That it now takes effort to win me.

For no matter how I might adore you,
Or feel emotions building within,
There’s some action I need to see.

I’ve learnt well from a Master
Of being used and abused,
And that’s no longer what I choose.

So pull your socks up Kid,
And put in some work real soon,
Or you’ll be the one to lose.
