Dead couples

walking side by side
like corpses that abide
abide by boredom
in ungraceful stride

awkward looks
routined ways
together trottin
like a pair of strays

their dying faces
at boring places
tell their story
of past gone glory

loneliness
galore
together
even a bigger bore

rejecting
true desire
afraid of sparks
igniting a fire

surprise surprise
it’s love’s demise
