“Mystery Maiden”

I saw a fair maiden
Such beauty none could compare
Eyes shine like stars in the night
Smile, worth more than gold
Face compares to blinding light
Hits me faster than a bullet
Harder than a supersized mallet.

At first, I thought it was impossible
Then I realized, my heart is becoming hers
This is new, I thought it to be illogical
My hypothalamus is becoming irrational.

She looked like a princess from the emerald Isles
Darn, why am I getting cheesy and emotional
Too much to handle, mom might meddle
I’d better stop it, right here
Otherwise, you’ll start yelling, ooooohhh.
