Something Plus

I don't do love
because I'm too cold.
I don't do love
because I'm too old.

The want for life
and love is gone.
I'm much too tired
to carry on

If old is cold
and lust's a must,
then what is bold
and what is just?

I'm just too old
and far too tired
to be so bold
or be inspired.

Bold truth in smooth short lines.
Old and cold to be bold......nice rhymes Sally, nice vivid poem. Though a bit sad, aged doesn't mean to be truly old or cold...i believe there's a child in everyone's heart.......10+++
