By Jack Belck
Of love’s gentleness she dreamt
with little hope or feigned attempt
to whisk away his manly moves
which no caring love behooves.
He wants hard not soft romance
Soft be gone for another chance.
Her perfect face and body
his tanned muscles and smile
come together for passion
but only for awhile
Relentless reality soon reminds
flesh bonds so easily with flesh
but nothing can ever connect
two empty untouched minds
