Hearts Hassle

Hearts hardly hassle, faces fake
Beware of priorities
You embrace by mistake
Lest you should reap indignities.

Hearts hardly humiliate, faces frighten
Beware where you put your best foot
In case you maintain and entertain
Options that confront the affront of a brute inside a court moot.

Hearts hardly humble, faces fantasize
Beware of nurturing delusions
Entertained in a bid to reap a prize
Teeming with angled allusions and illusions.

Hearts hardly hasten, faces fraternize
Beware of courtship criteria
You formalize and internalize
Lest you should cacophonize in a courtship cafeteria.
