A Bit Of A Catch

You’ve always assumed
you’re a bit of a catch
and believed
that there are plenty out there
who can’t wait to get their hooks into you.

Yet you’re without a mate
and still find yourself
swimming in the wide sea
of your own company.
How can this be?

Lift the scales from your eyes.
Don’t hesitate.
You need to see yourself
as others see you.

The reality must be faced
(and here’s the catch):
you’re not, my fishy friend,
to everyone’s taste.
