Romance Is Dead

it happens to so many
and we swore it wouldn’t happen to us,
yet here we are:
the kids have gone off to bed
and we lie here
confirming our romance is dead.

longing to be desired,
we’re aching for a spark,
any resemblance of burning fire

we know that something is missing
but don’t know where to start
too much hurt between us
making for many long empty nights.
there isn’t any relief in sight.
all that can be said
is our romance is dead.
