Marriage

To wilt away my life with you
Is not something I choose to do.
Too many times I’ve seen
Bitter, silent drifting;
Too many times I’ve watched
Two hearts that have themselves botched.
I don’t want that to be us:
So when you ask what’s all the fuss,
And why I will not marry you
Or say how much I love you,
I can only tell
That my soul I’ll never sell;
But you can have it for free
If you don’t ask for anything.


Incidentally, yesterday was my two-year WordPress anniversary. Sorry I’ve been scarce. My “little breaks” from trying to write around 1700 words each day, have a tendency to devolve into hours-long video game resource-gathering sessions. Which, I then have to make up for. Which usually involves my trying to write more than a thousand words while half asleep. Purely my own fault, of course. I’m too much an escapist, and the prospect of trying to write 50,000 words all in one month is daunting. Still, I’ve actually kept up thus far, which kind of surprised me. I thought I’d crash and burn within the first day or two. Still might. But hey, I did manage (the majority of) two years on WordPress, didn’t I?

  1. From my perspective, the constant blogging, the Been-In-A-Daze-For-Years-Now, the “Oh my God, how can it be 3:15AM already? I have to be at the office in three hours!,” is all worth it for you, the readers.

    One great conversation, one perceptive comment, – an instant boost of sunshine. Talking to myself gets real old, real fast. Talking to all of you, reading your comments, restores vigor.

    That’s why we do this, to get more doses of the miracle drug. Step right up! It’s free for all! Cures all that ails you!

    1. Lol! Well, at least I’m not the only one who does that. Have I mentioned that my time management skills are horrible? Probably stems from zoning out and having long talks with me, myself and I. I, for one, like those a little too much sometimes. Though, even I am not exempt from that little bit pleasure when a thoughtful commenter — such as yourself — stops to have a chat, with me of all people.
