"IF LOVE IS A TWO-WAY STREET, I'M NOT SURE I WANT TO DRIVE" :::: © JTK.CA

"IF LOVE IS A TWO-WAY STREET,
I'M NOT SURE I WANT TO DRIVE"
© JTK.CA
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Will you accept my faults and foibles,
And will I give them up for you?
Two key questions to ask
When choosing a relationship.

My fantasies are one-sided,
Me-sided,
But you are real,
And not merely put on earth to make me happy.
So what do I want?
I'm writing this poem,
So even I'm not sure.
You probably have a better grasp on it than me.

Clue me in,
If you get the inclination.
Then ask yourself,
"Will you accept my faults and foibles?"
And I'll ask myself,
"Will I give them up for you?"

TRUE LOVE will answer, "Yes,"
To both questions.
Anything else is JUST AN ILLUSION.

TAD'S NOTE: I was once pining after a girl, and a friend
asked me, "What do you want?" I answered, "I don't
know." Remembering his reaction, "That's profound,"
always causes me to chuckle. Life's romantic
quandaries are profound, sad, happy, beautiful, and
miserable, at the same time. Unrequited love
can be a "Sweet Misery," like the title of the
Michelle Branch song. I'll comment on "requited"
love once I've experienced it. When those fun
internet surveys ask me which I prefer, hugs or kisses,
I always answer:
"Hugs; not enough experience with kisses.
Insert violin music here."

It's amazing how much we desire
While not truly knowing what we desire.
Often, the desire can be
A sinful contempt for all the riches we already possess.
We want something because we don't have it;
Then once we get it, we store it on a shelf,
Where it lies forgotten for years.
