a lover’s leap of the mind

Lover's Leap State Park - Connecticut

I met a girl that says she likes
the way her boyfriend shoves her
she says she really likes the bad boy
in him, like no other lover

she’s sure not the girl I’m looking for
one that likes a tender soul and a gentle mind
but the world is so strange these days
and I guess it just takes all kinds

the closest I could come, I suppose
is to shove her emotions over some theoretical brink
and to try to do something spontaneous
like make love in front of the kitchen sink

or take her down to lovers leap overlook
and ask a friend to shove our car over that fantasy cliff
but she’d probably jump out of the car at the last moment
saying “you’re so boring” before walking off in a sniff

    I’m sorry, but the hypothetical image of my younger self flying over a cliff in my 1976 Chevy Nova looking over my shoulder at some girl who jumps out at the last moment and walks off in a sniff is somehow just hilarious to me. That’s a little disturbing, I suppose. Well, I guess it takes all kinds.
