GEMS AND JEWELS

There were no warnings
No red alerts
Had no idea
That I’d get hurt.

My heart and my soul
My body and mind
I was all yours
Thought you were all mine.

Not once did I doubt
No questions were asked
I should have known better
It just couldn’t last.

Way too much passion
So much sex and lust
Before too long
There was “her”and no “us”.

No mystery here
You found someone new
She caught your eye
It’s sad …. but it’s true.

Money and fame
Allured by her status
That’s what you want
For you …. it’s what matters.

The shiny trinkets
The gems and the jewels
So very fancy
I was …. such a fool.

Guess you have to go
Where the money will lead
It’s what makes you happy
It’s just what you need.
