Romance is Dead

Kick off our shoes
Skip to bed
Forget the love
Romance is dead

Skip to the good stuff
And don't ask why
It's what everyone does
Who could deny

We are but of many
Who fondle in the night
Far from each other
But in plain sight

After tonight move on
Forget we ever met
But it's so normal
So don't fret

I woke up today
Looked to my side
She was gone
That's how we abide

    BUT.. when that one special person touches your life u may change your mind..but I LUV your light hearted attitude in the poem's expression.. I feel I lived those lines for years.. until the right man and I just got married on the 22nd... ..enjoyed this happy weekend..with luv..

    Haha no this is dramatical irony for me in the sense that this is the complete opposite of how I view relationships.
