A black dress she wore cost her way too much.
She held hands with a new lover she knew would cost her way too much.
But anything to get out of the house and to ditch her loneliness would do her well.
Her date left his mark, breaking her skin with a neck kiss.
Somehow fall became spring.
The time it took to say I love you cost her way too much, more so than a diamond ring.
A baby pokes her belly, and a paycheck he spends way too much costs her the dream of moving to the West Coast.
