Confessions of a Recovered Romantic II

I know romance
which used to make me moan
has  become a study of indifference 

when by chance
watching an erotic movie alone
without any interruption or interference

My attention was much more attuned
to the sheet's thread count and room's feng shui
than naked bodies sexy action as  lovers swooned
a revelation too hard to understand, now I'm free

    Just emptiness, Stephen...sex with no emotion...emptiness. You've written a poem very relevant to the times. Always, Annalise
