Dear John

My Saturday Centus offering for our 60th week:



i may have to dear john
you before you are gone
arriving as you did
with your heart hidden
inside a business plan
a way for us to be
wealthy in our old age

rich is good my darling 
but kisses sweet and soft
outweigh your 401k
it is your heart I want
your hand enclosing mine
as we walk to market

Ahh, holding out for love! You are a romantic at heart.

Me, I'd settle for companionship AND the money...heheheheh

Now I wonder what poem I'd write in contrast to yours?

irishoma said...

Very romantic!

John needs to make an investment in love!

Outstanding Job !

Having money already and asking her man for romance and intimacy makes that lady one smart cookie and truly in love...love it !!!

I love the message here and I especially like the first line: "I might have to Dear John you."
PS I don't mind if you send him over here, though.
Nice job, CJ!

interesting ... and looking for romance after the finances are taken care of ... so clever!

Dazee Dreamer said...

aaahhh, true love. I loved it.

Bookie said...

This is delightful! Unique and says a mouthful in only a few lines.

BECKY said...

Ahh, very beautiful. I love it.

Tgoette said...

Aw, such a sweet and romantic poem! Beautiful job, CJ!

Anna said...

I like the fact that you have made a verb out of "dear john". Very clever.
Lovely poem! There is so much about the conflict between male and female packed into these lines.
Well done!
Best wishes,
Anna

Well crafted, CJ. And I just like the feel of it.

I like your priorities. If only the rest of the world felt that way! Love the way you used the prompt. laurie

Lynette Killam said...

Ah...a very clever take, C.J.! Money's little good without romance backing it up, though it's lovely when we can have both...LOL!

Rek said...

Is it based on Micheal, if I can ask...I somehow feel too inexperienced on respond those posts though I read them occasionally.
Realistic and deep ...well written.

Purvi said...

Nice romantic love angle given. :)

Jenny said...

Oh. I love Irishoma's comment. And I loved this tender little emotion caputured in 60 words. Money is always nice to have, but without the tenderness our hearts quickly become bankrupt!

Lovel.
