Relationship Talk: what should a woman watch out for?

Too blinded by love

I couldn’t see through your lies

Always acted like a love-struck puppy around you

Talked your ears off

About my dreams and future

Hoping you’d share the same excitement with me

You didn’t.

Yet, I looked past that

Because of how deep I was in the ocean of our love.

I didn’t see the shark coming.

Blinded by our love, I didn’t hear the snake hissing

Hand in hand we walked to a beautiful castle,

With a red carpet at the threshold.

I felt like royalty

A queen with a loving king by her side.

With one hand

You reached into your pocket.

My heart skipped a beat or two,

Tears glistened my eyes.

You held up the Pandora’s box,

I screamed with joy like a banshee

When my eyes beheld the glorious beauty that was to be my ring.

But you pulled the trigger when you asked,

“you think she’ll love it?”
