Waited your heart’s store to open
Be the first customer to yank it open
Excited to look for the things I’d be buying
To see if I could fit your heart’s branded clothing
Elated to find the appropriate fashion
But made me exclaimed when you weren’t meant for selling
So I bargained with your heart’s trusted salesman
To find out if you were mine for the taking
Then I got sad when he responded “I’m sorry Ma’am, he’s not in for the bargain.”
Though I felt depressed at his refusal, my eyes glistened for the year-end special
Maybe then your heart would undress from the mannequin and
Be displayed among the assorted or discounted items
Ready for me in case, I did my next window shopping.
For now, I need to look for your heart’s special offers
To know if promos, raffle draws and marked down items are available
In case fate will bring us closer, I must know your heart’s valued services and grand offers.
I must admit I don’t make much money.
So I wary your heart might be bought by other extravagant buyers or stolen by shop lifters.
And be left with nothing but the smell and the lonely image of your heart on that hanger.
But my love,
My heart too, prayed for that golden pot at the end of the rainbow.
If a miracle will pour on me,
I wish this time, your heart’s ready for my sincerest taking.
Not for free
Not through credits and
Definitely not for a bargain.
But for love meant for two hearts who patiently waited.
Only then I’ll thank god for shopping in your heart with nothing only to have something worth waiting.
