E.P. (Every Person) I Meet vs. Love at First Sight

Hearing a song for the first time
that captivates you completely
is Love at First Sight

You don't even know the words yet
but each movement and lyric
has mesmerized you

You want more
so you play it again and again
until you know it completely

And maybe when you meet someone
for the first time
they have this same effect on you

The good impression you had of them
hangs in the balance
of that first listen

So you press for more
but instead of repeating
the perfection of introduction

you enter into an expectation
of the album, hoping each date is greater
or as good as the first song you heard

This is why I'm no good at dating
Every one I meet
is a one hit wonder
