What is a proposal?
Is it a private declaration of love.
An innate desperation,
That you cannot live without,
That other person.
You need them beside you always,
Indeed your life would be poorer,
Without that husband or wife to be,
Who you adore above all others.
After all, you are in love.
Or is it a public display.
Something that will stay in the memory forever,
An event to be told,
And worth every cent of that bold idea.
Location more important,
And must be photographed.
The self gratification of money spent
On daft ideas. The act of exhibition,
And the cost overwhelming,
And the meaning of the moment lost.
