old_couples_in_love_are_so_cute_640_01Love after middle-age
it is said
can be ungainly
at best
no place to disguise or hide
extra folds
we are bodies desperately in need
of hiding behind clothes
like the unwashed memories
of youth seek showy fornication
we find pleasure
in subtle fantasy
when we really have to
unwrap for real
it’s like eating too much sugar
and wishing you hadn’t
reaching for more
oh go on
indulge yourself
you’re free now
tear up your ticket
leave behind
the rules

  1. Indeed! As we age, we discover that rules are meant to be broken.. and extra folds are just that much more to love 🙂 That is an awesome photo !!

    1. M, I wanted to write and say I am saddened by our distance though I understand it. I am regretful it happened though I know neither of us are to blame and I always hope you are doing well and I care even if it is not as much as it should be, that’s just my introspective self and nothing else. Have a lovely weekend. xo

      1. It’s 5:17am, insomnia… Thank you, likewise.
        I sent you an email… Going to try and sleep now. g-nite & g-morning. 🙂

  2. It’s true though. This thought is on the minds of many who especially don’t appreciate their own bodies or who crave acceptance from their lover / life partner. And there’s the age factor as mentioned here. Well written
