Price of Love: Rhymes for Some Humor

Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.


Whenever we hear of a "love for sale"

everyone thinks of the "first profession"

men especially, picturing its every detail

well, kind of thoughts for Sunday confession.

But, sorry guys, it's not what I had in mind

rather that old truth that every love may cost

to some it's jealousy, or heartache of other kind

while to others it's much more than mind they lost.

If you ever fall in love, just be ready to pay

in one or another currency it's left to be seen

whether you call yourself straight or you are gay

love may cost you just little, or it may rob you clean.

No, I'm not really being sarcastic

not even talking here about money

and it doesn't have to be all that drastic

but, you pay for calling someone "honey".

If your freedom means a lot to you

forget about love, go see a love movie

take some cold showers, pay visit to a guru

but keep your freedom to keep feeling "groovy".

Only one day, when love for sale sounds good

and she is so wanted that you just don't care

who knows, maybe thanks to that very mood

the cost will turn out something you'll share.
