Life Without Passion

Crystal Elisa Andrews

Without passion
Poetry is a bunch of dribble
Rhyming words
with  space in the middle
Without passion
Romance is simply an ideal
It can only be ignited by the way you feel
Without passion
Sex is just a sport
A love letter but a report
Without passion
Love has no face
And a life without passion
Makes a body a waste of space
