Poem – “Antiromantic”

Antiromantic

Here we go again,
Severing fingers to pocket their rings
Throwing funerals for lost emotions
Pretending any more beauty is possible
When we are sure it has deceased

We were the killers, after all
Yet here we go again, feigning romantic
Like a love song written by bitter cowards
Or gratitude promised by a miser
