Hard to Get

She didn’t know
the meaning
of playing
hard to get,

Teasing, cajoling
displaying her
come to me finger
coaxing

Tempting,

It takes
will-power
strength of conviction
absolute control
of feeling and emotions
stone-faced resilience

All fine qualities
none of which

I happened

to possess
