My materialist girlfriend (the campus magazine)

My materialist girlfriend (the campus magazine)

She actually left

But should I cry?

Should I go judging myself?

Should I prosecute myself for this?

And was it really my fault that she left?

Or should I even be asking myself all this questions?


You see

I was in love with her

A woman to whom my all I gave

The key to my heart she owned

And every route to my inner self she knew

I made every effort to ensure we were fine

Even though at times we were just ‘fine’


And btw

Is it proven that ladies don’t fall in love?

‘cause how this ended feels like I was the only one in love

Things falling apart like they were never joined before

From love to strangeity

What would look like a whole process of complex distillation

Ending up simpler than the very simplest grade one summations

And that is how it came to happen.


And in anyway ladies

What between true love and money would you prefer?

True love?


Well, for the woman I treasured

Money was her option over me

And willing was she to be stolen from me

By this heavy-walleted man with not love but money

She went

Gave me space to put myself together for my better.
