Do you remember falling in love
For the very first time?
The feeling was blissful
And so sublime,
But, how long did it last?
We all have our stories,
Trials and tribulations
Blues, amidst the glories.
I suffered infatuation much more,
Anything beyond that
Was a horrible chore.
Indeed, I was nearly struck down
By those infatuations,
The lucky hand failed me
And numerous incantations,
I lacked basic instruction
In matters of the heart,
I didn’t know how to finish
Or even to start.
These things are not taught in school
Like basic finance and more,
We stumble into those prospects
Unaware of any door,
That might guide us
Other than some whimsical instructions,
No wonder, we’re all so screwed up
Stumbling around trying to make deductions.
Trial and error
Is not necessarily, the best way to do stuff,
In a marriage, some people bail
Because they are not tough enough,
To put up with all the drama
Psychotherapist, Marriage counselor and more,
I’m telling you brother…………..
It can be one colossal chore.
Particularly, if reconnecting
Was not covered in the original contract,
When things didn’t work out
Accusations were flying jam-packed,
Without instructions regarding how to deal
It is no wonder, husbands and wives
Fall back and begin to squeal.
Lordly, all of those blissful memories
Of love and infatuation,
Are long gone, buried and dead
Completely off the reservation,
Not even the greatest of Chiefs
Can resurrect the ghost of love,
It’s time to climb into the new boat
And launch it with a shove.
