A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto


Fold

 

 

I rented a suit

picked you up in 

my F-150 limo

hoping to impress

 

but found that 

I had hearts

 

and you wanted diamonds

instead.

Best to forget her. What would be after the diamonds? Could you, would you want to keep up to her demands?

Take the best of care - Dave

Put it behind you. Any snooty b***h that looks down on an F-150 isn't worth the bother.

While I understand the let down this caused, I have found that I prefer the men that don't try to impress. Still, great intention.

This type of dame is never gonna be satisfied unless you have a huge wallet. Painful lesson here Jacob.

Ouch! Crushed heart burns, and all over a little bit of crushed carbon that went through volcanos reprocessing and survived the lava.
If only our hearts were as shiny and pretty. Maybe they would be beneath all the scars they havr been put through.

Okay, to me this is sad. Unrequited love is heartbreaking. Imagine giving your all to someone only to find out that's not enough.

There is so much packed into these lines and it paints a picture, a vivid one. It's concise and succinct. I like it!
