Money And Fair Words

With money and fair words he won her heart
With a flashy proposal promised they would not part

At the wedding the words I do he could not say
For in his heart he knew her love he would betray

So he ran from the altar and out the church door
Why he had done this no one was sure

Only he knew as he fled to his bit on the side
The poor bride collapsed and just cried and cried 

For he ran to be happy but it will not last 
For with women’s hearts he plays loose and fast

Her mother and father were shocked to the core
As they picked up their daughter off the church floor

Drying her tears they tried to explain
That one day she would love and overcome this pain

As for the girl she’s not trusted men for a while
Maybe one day a man will make her trust and smile

    The poor girl, Owen. She is better off without him. Great one always! Have a great day starting with your morning coffee :).

    Oh my, a bad experience for everyone. It's traumatic to lose trust of the one who is supposed to love you. Great expression of betrayal... :)

    How sad and tragic. Phew... glad I didn't have this experience 28 years ago! Clever and tongue in cheek write.
