THE BALLAD OF AN UNHAPPY MAN

I told her I would like her
if only she'd wear some lycra,
........or play the balalaika
whilst I photo'd with my Leica.

I said I had a soft spot
for her sexy rounded hot bot
and the harder it would get
if only she would let me
serenade her on her balcony
with my contrabassoon.

I informed her of my desire
to kiss her when required
until my desire expired
but that would not be
before her lyrical body
sang like a holy choir.

But all my protestations,
my urges and frustrations,
just missed my destination -
the object of my desire.

So without the hesitation
borne of trepidation,
I put my arms around her
and kissed her on the forehead
like many times before,
then swallowed much Viagra,
over dosing like Niagara,
and with a hard on bigger than Agra.
I died an unhappy man.

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Last few words: 
Well, her divorce has just come through so may be I'll try again.

LOL, I got big chuckles out of this piece... your rhyming, not only great, but consistent and right on track. very entertaining to be sure. yes, by all means go out and try again! (yes, I read your last few words, lol)

my favorite lines are:
So without the hesitation
borne of trepidation,
I put my arms around her
and kissed her on the forehead
like many times before,
