Romantics

Ophelia caught her death in the bathtub
and her man took back the offerings he
left for her in her grave.
Those red locks wrapped around her, a crown
of the wronged and used up lover, queen of loss
and the beauty she couldn’t save.
Words thrown around carelessly, without meaning,
and romantics are sociopaths looking for pleasure,
never the knight, never so brave.
