The Invitation



A lipstick sealed letter

Containing a heart so true

Intrigued his wandering mind

Left him wondering what to do


A million exciting thoughts

Permeated his eager young head

Yet the thought of a forever

Filled him with uncertainty instead


He couldn’t fathom the idea

Of being tied to only one

And thus his life of anguish

Began before he’d even begun


Cold as the letter became

He finally accepted the invitation

Yet those words of love grew stale

And eventually lost their motivation


The young man hadn’t realized

That love and devotion can often expire

And in the end he was left

Completely alone and uninspired
