Inflammable Futility

Updated on December 30, 2010

In the beginning sex was fun...

for him and for her...

they seemed to be one...

it was new...

they were strong...

blind to the future.

Watch the clock spin...

take a look what is wrought...

The man is unchanged...

that isn't a good thing...

still wanting the same things...

he didn't alter or watch out...

She watches time with greater exasperation...

wanting things out of him...

out of life that don't seem to be happening at all...

there is less to be happy about...

more reason to be depressed...

xanax can't can't even hide her distress.

he wonders where the party went...

she wonders why the party happened...

maybe that magic is just spent...

What is to be done?

What is to be rekindled?

Maybe they need a quite talk about the past...

to understand what they really wanted...

see if that still can be accomplished...

once again becoming one...

in more then one fashion.

Holding off might be best...

if you can't make it work...

sometimes living blindly saves on law fees.

      I am not entirely convinced that she is wrong in what she wants. She wan't progress and he often wants subsistence. I know of few things in the human spirit more necessary then to grow and stretch. In this hypothetical which is much repeated, both of them are heedless because whatever her instincts were, she didn't seek out someone who was interested in change up front and all attempts to get him to change natures at last have failed, expectantly. He on the other hand is a person who was a man of the earth, if one is willing to stay of the earth then more power to them. He didn't expect much out of life other then what he had and wanted in the moment. That suited her at first and he cant figure out why it doesn't suit her at last. The eventual heartbreak is easily calculatable. Whats worse, I have seen it happen before.

      It's amazing how in a relationship, from start to finish the man only really wants a partner to share pleasure with and love while the woman is always seeking changes.

      I especially like the parts about talking things over to learn what each other really wanted in the first place, and holding on.

      I know people who have tried mulitple times to find the "perfect" mate without trying too hard to be the perfect mate.
