If you can’t read between the lines
If you can’t decipher the cryptic codes
If you can’t roger my distress calls
If you can’t see my soul through my eyes
Then you are truly clueless
Captive of your own innocence
If my hugs are a pleasantry
If my kisses are just friendly
If my caresses are platonic
If my whispers aren’t enough poetic
I despise your cluelessness
Little girl, I loath your innocence
If you mistake my advances
If you misread my gestures
If you misunderstand my yearnings
If you miscalculate my longings
You are more than clueless
Innocent beyond innocence
If I can’t be in your dreams
If I can’t trigger your emotions
If I can’t make you nervous
If I can’t give you the vibes
Then am I the one who is clueless?
Could I be the one trapped in innocence?
If we can spend this much time together
If we couldn’t grow cold rather
If we do everything that lovers do
If we ignore their playful innuendo
Are we both clueless?
Lost in a ridiculous innocence?
Who is clueless?
Which one of us is prisoner of innocence?
Should you be innocent,for not feeling what I am feeling?
Should I be the clueless for feeling what you are not feeling?
I like the sound of it in my mouth
If I can deny everything and its aftermath ….
