Looking Back!

supplied the prompt


Cross out! Erase! Each awkward phase!
Each careless word! Each stupid phrase!
Banish for ever each worthless thought!
Block-out the blips of every sort!
Nullify each bad memory,
Slip of the tongue and banality!
Forget each silly painful scene!
Wipe the past completely clean!
See a life come into view
Pristine, noble, wise and true!
You'll find a life that's very fine!
But, certainly, it wasn't mine!


It really takes another snail
To love that rather slimy tail.
It really takes another worm
To appreciate that special squirm.
It really takes another pug
To appreciate its ugly mug!
And only another porcupine
Can snuggle up to a spiky spine!
It really takes another eel
To feel the way an eel should feel.
It really takes another horse
To want romance to take its course.
It really takes another goat
To want to cuddle and emote.
And it takes someone as odd as you
To love you just the way I do!

Great truth in that first one, now that we are older and wiser wouldn't it be nice if we could have a do-over?

wow Brenda, Every time I come by you never fail to amaze me. I have never read a better definition of compatibility than what you have offered here.
" And it takes someone as odd as you
To love you just the way I do!"
You hit the nail for me!!!

I like how this went, just wiping out from memory, negatives
