Watching romantic movies

Half-heartedly wishing I had that gene in my lineup.

Was I behind the door, as they say?

Or just occupied with fixing the door, painting the door?

Appreciating the sentiment

But wondering:

‘What about when all that romance

goes awry, heads south for the winter–

and the parting

is nasty, litigious

unloving?’

Call me unromantic

But I’ll settle for bluejeans, bare feet, flannel shirt

A snuggle with unsophistication

And love that is broader than just me/mine/love me only/ever.

Bare Feet

Thanks to my friend Geraldine of My Poetic Path for this week’s prompt on One Single Impression: romance. Please visit Geraldine’s blog here to read her contribution. Apologies to all my romantic friends for this curmudgeonly submission!
