Lines #8

The occasional series makes another pit-stop. Here's another favourite. For at least two reasons (which you're welcome to take a stab at guessing), these lines remind me of this.

***

The stars have started twinkling,
Flames have started leaping.
Just don't tease me now,
Just don't block my path.
For if I stop now, I won't ever leave.
And you'll say always,
That your heart hasn't had its fill.
This is not a matter that finishes so soon ...
Not now, not now, no, no
Don't leave me now and go,
Because my heart has not had its fill.

"..that's what the Punjabi dude said to me, girl. No, sang to me. You believe that? He, seriously, like, sang this! A lout, I kid you not, though really not that big, mind you. A small lout, like, a tout, more like. And he's got that sticky bob of hair on his forehead. And he keeps nodding. Like, sideways. What a loser, and I'm like, seriously, dude, you got into the army with that haircut? you really expect me to believe that? So obviously, what else was I to do - I told him off. I was like, "Dude, you'll be, like, repeating this to eternity: this heart hasn't had its fill..." but before I could go any further, his Cigarette Lighter of Love, like, sprang open and went ting-a-ling, my ting-a-ling, and the ring on my belly button, like, came off. Seriously, girl, I couldn't help myself! In an instant, I fell in love with this small lout with that ridiculous clump of rolled up hair on his forehead. Geez."
