Money can’t buy Love

It’s a verb
But he failed at showing it
It’s to do, feel and become
It’s not passive or still
It adapts to fit
Creating space for another heart rolex replica

He makes excuses
I explain but he refuses
He was my first
I never thought I would go through this test
I thought I have found the best
Finally, mum would let me rest

It took months to say yes
Mary’s took a minute
And in a week
It slipped through her fingers
Like a baloon loosing air
He was attracted to her height and hair
Not her personality, passion or purpose

He would rattle on like a parrot
Soon, the word had lost it’s meaning
His words glided through her spine
Cascading her bones
She thought the words would relief the bouts of pain
Little did she know, his kind was unrequited
She took his giddiness for commitment
She didn’t know his aim
She thought they would win the game
Love is not just a feeling on the first day
Passion, patience and promise are pertinent
To love is to do watches replica
To love is to stay true watch replicas
