A Certain Lady – Poem by Dorothy Parker

Oh, I can smile for you, and tilt my head,
And drink your rushing words with eager lips,
And paint my mouth for you a fragrant red,
And trace your brows with tutored finger-tips.
When you rehearse your list of loves to me,
Oh, I can laugh and marvel, rapturous-eyed.
And you laugh back, nor can you ever see
The thousand little deaths my heart has died.
And you believe, so well I know my part,
That I am gay as morning, light as snow,
And all the straining things within my heart
You’ll never know.

Oh, I can laugh and listen, when we meet,
And you bring tales of fresh adventurings, —
Of ladies delicately indiscreet,
Of lingering hands, and gently whispered things.
And you are pleased with me, and strive anew
To sing me sagas of your late delights.
Thus do you want me — marveling, gay, and true,
Nor do you see my staring eyes of nights.
And when, in search of novelty, you stray,
Oh, I can kiss you blithely as you go ….
And what goes on, my love, while you’re away,
You’ll never know.

Lady From Simpleton

A lady from simpleton, stole my heart today.

Seen her for a split second, from not so far away.

But couldn’t get time to know her, couldn’t get time to say.

I only wanted to know her, but she went far away.

Loves like cannabis, it makes you mesmerized.

Loves like cannabis, it makes you hypnotized.

Loves like cannabis, it takes you on a high.

Loves like cannabis, you’d never wanna die.

It wasn’t long when I saw her again, maybe month or two.

I always longed to speak to her, but she always flew.

One awful day i was going to say, but something struck my mind.

When I turned behind there she was, her beauty made me blind.

Loves like cannabis, it makes you mesmerized.

Loves like cannabis, it makes you hypnotized.

Loves like cannabis, it takes you on a high.

Loves like cannabis, you’d never wanna die.

We used to be together, almost all the time.

But I never picked the clue from her, our love was about to chime.

She waited for me, she longed for me, but I could never say.

She loved me, she loved me, and she wanted it to be this way.

Loves like cannabis, it makes you mesmerized.

Loves like cannabis, it makes you hypnotized.

Loves like cannabis, it takes you on a high.

Loves like cannabis, you’d never wanna die.

We grew closer day by day , like oceans with the shore.

My love for her was so pure , it had all forms of cure.

This is my heart wrote down to you, with mistakes of all kind.

I am sorry if Ive hurt you, but my love is all you find.

Loves like cannabis, it makes you mesmerized.

Loves like cannabis, it makes you hypnotized.

Loves like cannabis, it takes you on a high.

Loves like cannabis, you’d never wanna die.
