Love Don't Listen When You Call
by Miriam M. Wynn

Deny me, 
This you do without fail, 
While you know I ache for you, 
And desire your 
Attention; 

Pay me some mind? 
I blindly adore you? 
Forgetting that I am 
Equally aware of your flaws? 

Respect this 
Love I have for you? 
Love is no trifle, 
And it may harm you. 

I will not nip at your heels like a dog; 
I'm no puppy, tail between my legs; 
I love you but I'm not 
Stupid; 
If you hurt me I won't 
Forgive . . . 

You continue to refuse me 
The one thing I want; 
I ache for your body 
And I am forbidden to touch you; 
You are so cruel to me, Baby; 
So cruel, but I still love you? 
But deny Love, 
And she won't hear you 
When you call . . . 

Give me a chance, bBaby; 
For even a moment, Baby; 
Be brave enough to test these waters, 
These warm and dangerous waters; 

Are you man enough for love, Sugar, 
Can you meet this lady's challenge; 
Can you hear Love singin' to you, 
Right here in the dark, 
Singin' the blues right in your ear? 
Oh, baby . . . 

Are you afraid of the dark, honey? 
Do you need someone to hold you . . . 

Can you stand the power of love, Lover? 
Are you a coward, 
Must you deny? 
But you should never deny love, Sugar, 
For she don't listen if you snub her, 
No? 

She won't listen when you call . . .
