Careful, they told him as he mentioned forever
Red flags were seen before by others.
Understanding concern from friends and family
Enchanted by looks and sweet talk
Lulled into her web of lies, he does what he wants.
She grabs the box with a shaking hand.
Moved, she smiles and wonders which ring he bought.
In seconds, the carefully wrapped box is open
Leaving her stunned as if touched by a cattle prod.
Enraged she throws it back at him.
