Hard to Live the Romance

By PoeticMeditations

Hard to live the romance
Life keeps getting in the way
Moonlight walks, a slow dance
But no one wants to play.

Poetry, wine and roses
Are the bread of life
For some, they’re merely poses
To woo then win a wife.

Chivalrous knight in armor
Lithe damsel in distress
Turns out to be a bore
The lady quite a mess.

Castle in a trailer park
Steed a beat up Ford
Hard to light the romance spark
With life in such discord.

Happily ever after
Once upon a time
Seems the only thing that matters
Is the reason not the rhyme.

Liza with her prejudice
Mr. Darcy with his pride
Such romance is not for us
Just trying to get by.

But I’ll wake up each morn
Believing in love that’s true
Until such fruit is born
These poems I’ll write for you.
