Modern Romance

**This was inspired by artwork by Sarah of SarahJaneProsetry and the song she included with it.**

Modern Romance

Modern romance

There is no such thing

Old or new

It stays the same

Only the function

The how and the why

Is updated


Reset buttons pushed

With meaty fingers

The mechanical drone



Modern lips still touch

In ancient kisses

Playing to an audience of one

Tears and sweat

Are still saline

Not silicon

Hands and eyes meet


In timelessness

  1. This made me full on smile. It was so different than what inspired me. My art piece was done in the peak Of love. The song, my heart ache. You found the truth and balance in between. Well done!
