Lovey Dovey Mushy Stuff in Fiction


 Cuddles and kisses
Saccharine dripping
From the pages
While others look on
From both worlds

Puppy love
First love
Slipping into other genres
Giving characters
A chance to be more human

Yet it can be out of place
Smooching among zombies
Cooing in combat
Goo-goo eyes during disaster
Boundaries must be made

And still we go too far
Caught up in the romance ourselves
Living through the scenes
And letting our characters
Being incredibly human

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

    I agree with everyone. This is great!


  3. Love this, Charles! It reminds me of…me! 😀

    While I am a HUGE fan of the romance genre, I get annoyed during my favorite action movies when car chases and explosions have to pause for the hero/heroine to have a ‘moment.’ LOL!
    “Really? Could we please finish blowing up the city and annihilating aliens first?”

    Thanks for the smiles! 😉

  4. Great poem, I enjoyed it.


  5. You know how sometimes characters say “this is the perfect time to panic” during an emergency? I think there might be a perfect time for romance in emergencies, too. YOLO takes on a whole new meaning during a zombie apocalypse, after all. 🙂
