Think of Me [with audio]

*spoken word*

Worst thing about New Year’s Eve,
Being a romantic
But no one to love you the way you need
I’m holding back the urge to walk away
I’m holding onto responsibilities,
Accepting my fate

Oh, will you please think of me
When you’re kissing your lover
Send your positive vibes,
Your good thoughts,
Your shout outs,
Send me a love I’d not want to live without

Romance is Dead [with audio]

*spoken word*

After the kids go off to bed
And the one lying beside you confirms that romance is dead
Longing to be desired,
Aching for a spark,
A resemblance of burning fire
Each of you knows something is missing
Nights are better spent kissing
But it’s a long empty night
There isn’t relief in sight
All that can be said is:
Our romance is dead
