Split Personalities Joined By Eternal Love.

 

If love is a

temporary madness

let me be

totally insane,

locked in a

strait jacket for two

in a rubber room

where we can frolic,

give us both a couple

of shots of damnitol

every four hours

and then we'll dance

in mindless splendour.



They say marriage

 
is an institution


perhaps it's a mental one.

Two souls bound by laws


commited to the absurdities


of each other,


which only reveal themslves


long after the vows....


and only a judge can


release them


from caring for each other.

But most marriages


hold two who are


not patients but


more of a form

 
of patience.

They start out crazy


about each other,


till eventually that is cured


and reduced to a mild


form of tolerance.

But by then they


have grown comfortable


with thier treatment


of each other and tend


to ignore their failings.

Most die married

 
as just friends.

Love is an affliction


and I long to be sick


and tired of another


warm body next to me


in my King sized bed,


because  anything


less is loneliness


which is the worst

 
madness of all.

      Loved it, Loved it, Loved it! The mental institution of marriage where "two souls are commited to the absurdity of each other" is a BRILLIANT definition. Could loneliness be any worse?

      Amen Brother MFB! Amen. I'm sitting in the choir. But there are empty seats all around me. I love to love. I want to love another. I also never want to be a disappointment to another person. So- I "Sit Here In My Lonely Room"! I could never write this as beautifully - but I've written something familiar. Is there hope for us in love? Man- with your contributions there should be hope for you. For me? I'm a "hasbeen-neverwas". I'm at the depot waiting for the next train out. I have no idea how to live away from the depot.
