COMITMENT PHOBE SERIES TWO

“COMMITTED LOVE? A COMMITMENT-TO-FATE! BACK AGAIN! I JUST CAN’T WAIT!” a poem, a.k.a.: “A Fear of Relationship Test!”10 August 2019 (Saturday)

How can you ever be “a committed guy?” Don’t you scream and jump,

Out-the-window – when-your-Sweetie-wants-to-do-“the-bump,”

“Tie The Knot” and start(?) a life with you!?

Are you “A Commitment Phobe?” Whoever knew?

When you’ve been married twice – to the same saucy gal?

When you stick by your friends? (Their life-long pal)?

When you’re devoted to your parents & backyard critters (and have been all your life)?

ARE YOU NOW (suddenly) “A Commitment Phobe,” running from a potential wife?

Or (could-it-be?) YOU’RE DEVOTED “AS HECK,”

To a certain someone – whose life (of course) you DON’T wanna wreck,

Whom you don’t wanna disappoint because she thinks The World of you,

Not accepting that YOU’RE JUST! a-love-sick-little-thing, sad and blue!?

Is-it being-“A-Commitment-Phobe,” being on the phone each day for years,

With “The Girl of Your Dreams,” through smiles and tears,

Through divorce, heartache, operations – and many-a-pout?

Sure, you’ve-hung-up, but only once-or-twice, and-that-was-about,

Simply-not just staying on the phone, while “Honey” vented for ANOTHER hour!

DOESN’T IT TAKE – JUST A LITTLE BIT OF COMMITMENT POWER,

To keep reminding “Ms. Right” (and-SHE-IS!) that you’re crazy for her?

And you keep telling your parents and friends [that] she makes you purr?

And you call-out her-name in The Middle of The Day?

“ARE YOU A COMMITMENT PHOBE or THE MOST COMMITTED GUY IN THE WORLD?” we’re-apt to say. Who are those who-are always afraid you’ll run away,

When there’s no place to run!? Well, I-guess I’ll-continue to-get-up-each-day,

& affirm that: It’s not THAT BAD to just be alive & have wonderful people around,

And I love them all, and I am surely bound,

To take ONE OF THEM IN PARTICULAR as my pretty bride – pretty soon,

As soon as HER commitment phobias? have lifted? we’ll fly to The Moon;

We’ll go to tropical islands together – and pitch a tent,

Then oogle and boogy until She’s bored and spent,

And-asks: “What now?” and-then-I’ll-say: “I thought you’d never ask!

WELL, HERE-IT-IS: COMMITMENT! WILLING TO JUST ‘DO THE TASK,’

TO GO ‘BACK’ TO WHAT WE’VE ALWAYS DONE, which-is: SCRAPE & MOAN,

TAKE CARE OF FRIENDS – AND NOT TALK TOO MUCH ON THE TELEPHONE!

AND LIVE LIFE ONE DAY – ONE DAY AT A TIME,

AND WRITE AND LIVE EACH PRECIOUS RHYME,

OF EACH DAILY ADVENTURE THAT WE TAKE IN OUR LIFE,

LIVING AS A SEEMINGLY ORDINARY HUSBAND AND WIFE,

WITH A SPECIAL BONUS OF COMMITMENT AND LOVE,

WHICH, OF COURSE, IS WHAT LIFE IS REALLY MADE OF:

LIVING, LOVING – AND BEING CLOSE BY,

WITH THE-ONE YOU-LOVE (pause) [WITH] TEARS IN EACH EYE!” 🙂 – Sigh!

MUSHY LOVE STORIES: “The Yummy Strokin’ Family Guy!”

MUSHY LOVE STORIES: “The Yummy Strokin’ Family Guy!”

Once upon a time, I think a fellow met his true love! Her name was Kailee! She came “into” the world from “above!”*

Well, this guy Sherman and Kailee married & lived to be quite old! Maybe they were 80 or so at the time this story is told! They lived and they loved, and they grew older together! They were like peas and carrots, in all sorts of weather!

They had a couple of FAIRLY-cute kids, bought a house and a car, and they’re content, pretty much wherever they are! As they got older, they moved a bit slower! “K” enjoyed sitting in a lounger, one somewhat lower, but Sherm liked to cook meals and clean a bit and go shopping: even though that-was K’s “regular job,” she gave up so much “hopping” around to get grocery purchases, and do cooking and stuff! Yet, Sherm was pleased as punch! He seemed to never get enough of doing stuff for Kate! I guess he really adored her so!

Once, one of their kids had a birthday, for even kids get older, as you know!

It was a pizza party, with cake and ice cream, and “one year to grow!” It was a pretty nice day, as far as days go! As Dad Sherm and The Kid sat around the dinner table, they chatted about current affairs and talked about a famous FABLE: One about a man married 50 years, to the same ol’ wife! He was interviewed by a youngster, asking if there hadn’t been strife! The interviewer said: “50 years? That’s a long time!” “Yeah, but it would-a-been-MUCH-longer-without-Her!” was his rhyme!

Anyway, back to now, and these two guys are eating pizza pie, and Sherm had a little bit of the classic, wondering eye, looking over at Katie, asking her if she needed anything! “Not now,” she said, “but, for The Kid’s birthday – let’s definitely sing!”

So, they sang The Birthday Song, candles got blown; everyone had a nice meal, this should be known! And, with YUMMY cake in his mouth, Sherm said to The Kid with a purr: “You know, Sonny! I just LOVE lookin’-at-her!”

And The Kid thought: “After 60 + years of starts, STROKES! and stops, Of heartaches, difficulties, washes and mops, and diapers and arguments and finances and travel – and-all-sorts-of-chances-to-have-everything-unravel, these two are still together, and Sherm feels THAT way!

MAYBE THERE’S HOPE FOR ALL OF US, for TOMORROW & TODAY!”

*We all do, actually! Some people just don’t notice!

The End?
