Life Is Romance

image

Who couldn’t say life is romance?
For what is pain? Suffering?
Ecstasy in another’s arms?
Why is war romantic, its brutal and bloody.
Like getting your heart ripped out!
Everything is Everything… Think about that.
Totally connected, totally disconnected from everyone Oh yes, life is romance.
Spiteful, hurtful, and delicious.
The pleasure drives us on,
the pain makes us retreat
We crawl inside our bottles and
Write ourselves to sleep…
