The Prostitute and The Romantic

October 26, 2008
By Griffin Dellaverson, Los Angeles, CA

“It’s a terrible thing to hope
It’s a horrid thing to wish,
It’s a dreadful thing to trust,
and an
awful thing to expect”


He never had a chance
against her quite charms and
practiced words,
drawn to her enticing mannerisms and
enchanting cosmos,

She never had a chance
battling his loving gaze and
soothing touch
Combating his warm presence,
and unwavering fidelity...

They never had a chance
because she was paid
and he was romantic.
