Can I Buy Your Love Poem by Sulaiman Mohd Yusof

Can I Buy Your Love

Rating: 4.0

Hey girl, can I buy your love
I want you but I’m not rich
I want you but I’m not good looking
My father says, man can’t buy a woman’s love
Unless she loves you
May I ask what love is?
How come no woman loves me
I’ve tried so many times
It’s always a failure
Ended up when she learnt
That I’m not rich
That I’m not educated
That I’m not good looking

What will happen to people like me?
I guess I’d end up married
To the woman who shared
The same fate as me
For, they too have not much choice
To choose

So, what love is?
Could someone define love?
For, I don’t get the right answer
Until I get the right woman
Meaning of love
Would reveal
The truth

buying love or buying a wife? sounds like wholesale prostitution to me...

maybe we can buy love, but this price can be paid with money... is paid with life! the sad thing is that we can give our life to the loved person, and still we wont own them... unfair, sad, but truth... I guess! lol
