Love Is Not For Sale

I see that look on your face.
Why doesn’t it agree,
With the words you speak?

You hating me,
Am I the cause of it?
Because your brain,
Can’t handle
That type of rejection.

And you had told me,
You loved me,
Bearing gifts!

Opinion: When you love somebody, you receive joy by giving tangible gifts to your loved one. The only way to make human interactions is through fiscal transactions. However, if you become broke, you can’t give anything of value anymore—so what can you do, to let your loved ones know—you’re thinking about them? You could offer them your time, but after a while, you’d become annoying and nobody would want you around, especially if you have your own opinions. In the end your heart would have to move on, along with your love for them, causing your heart to become jaded, because it was only being used for gain.

“Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?” Bible, 2 Corinthians 6:14

Commentary: You can’t go into a relationship, believing that just because you have invested time and money, you own somebody. Only a flawed individual will try to impose his will, on another human being. Sadly, codependent relationships usually start off as innocent gifts, but always end up being abusive. You can’t claim somebody’s love, unless she volunteers her heart to you in the first place, otherwise it’s just a financial transaction.
