Love and affection – can they be tagged with a price?
You say you’ll love, if I love you back, more than you love me.
You say you’ll love, if I give my all, give up everything that I am.
You say you’ll love, if I close my eyes against all your wrongs.
You say you’ll love, if I support you, and let you control me.
You say you’ll love, if I cut my wings down, and never fly.
Love and affection – can they be labelled and sold?
The price of your love costs a fortune, and I don’t know how
To fight and win this long-played game of buying and selling.
You shall be the seller, but I shall never buy it again. No.
Your love has become my greatest fear. It has become
The butcher of my beautiful, beautiful dreams.
Today, I shall cut all the shackles binding my heart
And fly away. Free from this hopeless meander
And enjoy the liberation from the smothering cage.
I don’t want a love that costs me myself. Not anymore.
But then, love and affection – can they be tagged and sold?
If they are tagged, can they really be love and affection?
