At what age are you expired? too old for sex too old for romance too old to exist. The cold is seeping into my bones and my mind is stiff with desire. Is passion an invention for the young? A lifetime of broken hearts carved into each wrinkle sagging body bit meant nothing? At the end of my journey by my bag tricks to the day my heart ceases to be.
