Filthy Romantics

What those filthy romantics don’t understand
is that you cannot stand.

If you try you will end up on your knees with shredded soles.

They have the “never give up” mentality
because they have not looked down at their own hands,
so cut and bleeding
that the pieces they’re trying to collect slip through their fingers.
