labels or love ?

some people look at the Louis V bags and the Marc Jacobs watches, the Gucci purses and the Prada shoes and see their heart. D&G can't hurt you like Diamond or Garrett can. if you make as much $$$ as you can and spend it before you even see it, you won't have time to think about that pain. you won't have time to remember all of the bruises he left across your face or all the dudes she fxcked while you were sleeping. money can't break your heart like her.

your Fendi purse can hold all of your make-up, wallets, money, pens, cell phones and accessories but it can't even begin to possess the burden of the tears you've cried over and over again. guys come and go but those purses last f o r e v e r. they won't leave you slumped over the toilet without a clue. they won't walk out the door and never come back without even saying goodbye. they're yours. you own them and the only way they can get away is if you throw them away first.

when you pull up your True Religions, they can't give you an STD. they can't make you pay child support or threaten your life. they're the closest thing to your body without even making you break a sweat. they can't make you worry where they're going and who they're with. they can't take advantage of your kindness like her. all you have to do is pick them up and put them away if you don't want them anymore. they won't ever betray you. you take it one leg at a time without jumping in too fast and your relationship is perfect. . . at your own will.

why can we find more loyalty in the shxt we buy than the people we "love" ? how can we love people who we can't trust ? love is funny like that. some things catch your attention, like a beautiful woman with long legs in high heels or a tall dark skinned man with style and class, like a Louis V store in a mall or a sheet of glass filled with possessions that only movie stars can buy. are they one in the same ? maybe.
