“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!
