Hopeless Romantic

2017 November PAD Chapbook Challenge: Day 18
Write a ‘good for nothing’ poem

Hopeless Romantic

this poem is a romantic
counting the ways
strolling in the moonlight
plucking daisy petals

this poem still uses words
like swoon and beloved
and believes candle light
makes all the difference

some say it’s a
good for nothing poem
a dreamer
a time waster

but this poem
walks to the beat
of its own heart
makes its own music
loves as if the world
might end
