Told Something No One Should Say

I remember when I was dating!
This revelation should expose one thing...
I take a pride in my memory!

Well...
Anyway,
I remember when I 'was' dating...
I had gone out a couple of times,
With someone I regarded as 'special'.
And...
I was told something no one should say,
Not to someone you are trying to impress...
With an ultimate 'capture'.

I don't care if it's on the top of your tongue.
Bite it!
Do not say...
'I am going to make you love me.'

Whoa...
Did I just hear that?
Did I just hear someone say...
They are going to 'make' me do something?
My own 'mama' couldn't do that.
Okay?

I don't care if it's on the top of your tongue.
Bite it!
Do not say...
'I am going to make you love me.'
OR...
Anything that remotely sounds like imprisonment,
With a monitoring done.
And 24 hour surveillance.

'Excuse me...
I'll be right back.
I have to use the restroom.'

Do you know what that does?
With good intentions or not meant?
That says subconsciously to a mind...
In a 'Wishing To Be In A Relationship' mode,
To run.
Get up quick...
Without a word to say.
Split!
Just run away.
