Modern Love

Love as a commodity,

A like,

A swipe to the right;

An exchange of sorts,

And important to remember,

Usually a fleeting connection.

It’s the diet-Coke form of love:

It offers you some remembrance about the full-fat taste of love,

Without the necessary calories to sustain,

Or even adequately sweeten one’s life.

It’s the swan -song to meaningful connection.

And the weary moth,

Mistaking electric bulbs for flames,

Still get burnt;

Ignominiously however,

In the search for modern love.
