Her fingers spilled
letters of romance
for hearts adrift
to lift in hope

Spelling out swells
of lustful tales
he wrote of passions
in crashing throes

She collected words
in scents of roses
He delivered verses
of submissive poses

She scripted lives
derived from fairytale dreams
He penned of the highs
of writhing elated screams

‘Romance is dead’
he chides her lightly
‘So is passion it seems’
she retorts so effortlessly

As she rests astride
his already awaiting knees
yet another Sunday fades
between their bound bodies

Romance and Lust
Write there

Poetic interprets of title and picture by Mark Davis

Is love shared
Feelings cared
Romance and lust
Deflated by trust

Is the future bright
Are we doing it right?
Blissfully unaware
Their partner is there

A trip to the hills
No internet ills
Phone service away
Put aside for the day

Reconnect sighs
Look in each other’s eyes
Let lips meet
Don’t admit defeat

Romance can return
Make you both yearn
Lust come alive
Relationship thrive
