Catch and Release

There are numerous fish
in the vast oceans,
but you had to pick her,
a fragile and rare girl.


She didn't think she was
worth catching until you
came along and whispered
she was someone special.


You're a man who baits women
and when they are hooked,
they try to wrestle free
and get wounded in the process.


They do not care about
the scars they will carry
for the rest of their lives,
damaging future relationships.
