the skeletons of two lovers – a poem

the skeletons of two lovers – a poem

she fell in love
with the love poems
written to encourage engagements
and asked
for one to be written
for her birthday
but the joy had left
the hit had worn off
and what remained
were the skeletons
of two lovers
still sharing a bed
without hot blood
or empathy
