Love’s alternative

Love sneaks in where it wasn’t sought after
Because the distance couldn’t scare it away

It has its way with us
Since we couldn’t run from it fast enough

It takes on a life of its own
This impossible love
We are stuck with

Late in the game
It is time…



For writers

Days are filled with lists of things to do
From morning till night

Keeping busy is the pointless goal
Of running the rat race
Where there are no winners

Playing it cool makes your world colder
A process that only makes us older

An illusion that time is scarce
Keeps us…



Where romance happens

I’ve resorted to every trick in the book for a romantic rendezvous with you
In search of relaxation and pleasure
The golf resort did not do
The beach resort isn’t right

An island resort is inviting
Ski resorts are out
Spas are relaxing

In our quest for escape
