A man thinks that a girl he met is the right one for him. That beginning sees a tumultuous relationship, to say the least. Throughout their relationship, the girl always avoids giving her all to the man. Why?

My impressions:

Is it really love
Or just the physical attraction

That keeps someone going
In pursuit
Through so many disappointments

Against the advice
Of others who can see from afar
That the chase
Never ends

Is it worth the trouble
The heartaches
The uncertainties

When push comes to shove
Humiliated, dejected
The heart still pines for

The object of desire
