My pet

Photo by wallpaper

I’m in love with my pet

Which I accidentally met

Its calibre not of our society

A belief in our culture

I really want to possess my pet,

Though the elders demur

They say love is blind

Yet I visualize it

They Compare my pet to a peasant

Yet force me to an old wrinkled pet

Not caring bout heart’s desire.

I really want to possess my pet

As its the delight of my day

That brightens my future

And makes me feel top of the world

Without my pet…..

“False love can be bought; true love is priceless”.
