The Miser And The Model

The miser and the model
are a couple, you might say,
yet they don't speak to one another,
she treats him like a brother,
how to add a little romance 
and excitement to their day?

He forgoes his prime obsession
and decides on a surprise
for his delectable companion
with such sadness in her eyes.
He promises forever, 
no more secrets, no more lies.

As a miser he hoards money,
as a model she craves size,
so he gives up on his stinginess,
forks out three thousand dollars
to provide her with 'an extra lift,'
she gives her man a hug and kiss
'cos she is thrilled to bits!

    Can I get in line? Nobody ever gave me anything like that. You are sweet enough to make a girl lucky when you bring one to life in a poem.

    This was a very fun poem from you. Just picturing how a miser ever ended up with a model is quite a feat!!! But stranger things have happened. My hubbie and I are like sun vs. the moon!!
