Romance Is Short Lived


Romance is a chase. Both will stop doing
Once the pursued one is in the pocket.
Man skips romance soon after marriage.
Wife minds it not, getting proprietorial role.

Romance is the cotyledons of the seed.
Once germination is set they will die as food.
Seeds must die for the shoots to develop.
Romance should wane for the love to stabilize.

    Brilliant idea... I love the way how you compare romance to a seed, optimistic. But in the first stanza its kinda feminist... (Report) Reply

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.

If with light head erect I sing,
