He had waited it seemed so long for love
then his heart pounded
at an office party found himself drawn
to a very alluring lady
had never seen her before this night
beautiful a pure delight!
They talked and danced until early light
they were meant to be
eventually parted after a passionate kiss
confirming their second date
over the next few months love bloomed
he was unaware it was doomed!
At the start all was a life of magical bliss
within a month moving in
love-making was good yet it felt wrong
she acted too clinical
soon noticed she did not eat anything
or drink alarm bells did ring!
From that initial attraction suspicion grew
there was a coldness
he had not noticed before becoming wary
yet she looked so perfect
decided it best to end this strained affair
his life with her could not share!
Why had he got that reluctance to explain
why his feelings had changed
but summing up the courage now spoke
she seemed more distant
as they sat together on the large settee
he just wanted to be free!
From being truly elated he had found love
to dumping the stunning woman
but he had become terrified being close
after the words were spoken
her mood changed and the reply stark
as venomous words it did spark!
Without emotion said he could not leave
had never loved a human before
was an android living within our society
he was shaken to the core
got up to escape this beast foolishly said
its hand hit his head!
Down in the busy street a body battered
on the pavement spattered!
He never did find his true Love!
