Questions From an Aromantic

What is romance?

What is this deeper connection
that we define as somehow separate
from platonic care and affection?

How do we draw the lines
between the romantic and the sexual
and how they affect our relationships?

Romantic attraction. . .
Sexual attraction. . .
Platonic attraction. . .
Aesthetic attraction. . .
Sensual attraction. . .

What are the differences?
What are the similarities?

Theoretically I know the answers,
but how do I navigate my own feelings?

Maybe I am not meant to understand
this abstract concept called romance,
and maybe there’s nothing wrong with that.

Maybe I am not broken after all.
