As Love


You and me

Have been together

For many years

But what we have

I would not classify as love

We have mutual respect

But few things in common

Some days are eerily quiet

When words are hard to find

And physically distant

Is a kind way to say

Where we are at

No romance

No lust

Very little communication

I would not classify this as love

We have become roommates

Written for Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (FOWC) – classify
