He was a man who befuddled me

With his hot and cold reactions

His give and then his take away 

Completely denying his attraction

I had known his sort before 

The kind who shields his heart

They come on scorching, then icy 

Unwilling to play out their part

He shrugged me off so easily 

I envied the simplicity and ease 

For I would be less broken now 

If he would have stopped the tease
