to show your love.
Corny verses, heart decorations, dozens
of red roses bought at extravagant prices.
Stressing, worrying, fretting, wondering
if there’s really any love between you or
is it all in your mind?
Candle light dinners, diamond rings,
necklaces, a fortune spent to buy love or
outdo another in giving.
When the day is over and everything’s said
and done, what really happened has slipped
your mind – then suddenly you remember –
you proposed – and he/she said ‘No’.
