Stop Winking at Me

It’s really very flattering,
But pretty aggravating.
Everyone’s always doing it.
Sometimes it’s frustrating.
I know you mean no harm,
But still it’s just too much.
Mostly because it’s unnerving
And embarrassing as such.
So try to understand
That though it’s very nice,
When you woo the evil,
You could pay the price.

Inspiration: TW challenged me to write on why it makes me so uncomfortable when people wink at me, especially strangers.
