Three Weeks...That's It!

Okay!
I am finally convinced.
You are madly in love with me.

Resisting the opportunity,
To return my telephone calls...
Has to be upsetting.
Stop!
Don't continue to do this to yourself.

The police came by to question me!
You would do 'anything'
To cement my love for you!
I told them that!
Why are you the last one,
To realize it!

Okay!
I am finally convinced.
You are madly in love with me.

Sending your brother by my home,
Is totally unnecessary!
There is no need to keep up with your pretensions.
I'll tell say this...
And this is my final offer.
If I don't hear from you within three weeks...
That's it.
I am going to move on.
You are playing too hard to get.
You are wasting valuable time.
I hope that is understood!

Three weeks...
That's it!

I dont know the backdropp of this poem. But this poem defines human mind; of both male and female especially in love matters. Women often say no when they want it in fact. One Telugu poet somewhere in 1950s wrote that 'the words of women have different meanings'
