what's the reason to stay alive @ 03:33 am

what's the reason to stay alive
when you sleep alone
when your naked body is not side long against another's daily?

when you see the same views every day
no matter how spectacular
or exotic
if you're not staring at that vista with a friend
or telling him
again today
your feelings of the clouds in the sunset

it's really not worth the struggle
to say your rituals alone
tell your stories into the silent air
all your beauty falling into
representations of meanings
with out a living being
an audience
an acolyte
a companion

i would do the same
I would do the same
I will do the same
if I'm not careful
turn attention to what I know
over there
by the campfire
not here
just here
God alone in the Desert

it's our dance
one of the many songs
but yes
the one we come out for
you and I
you & you & you and i

Well, let me answer that. I've had lovers all my life. 99% of them were Taurus, and we fought & fought.

Finding a lover is relatively easy compared to finding someone you're compatible with.

There's a downside to being coupled up for long periods, certainly, but it has its compensations. I will say that endlessly coupling in more random fashion quickly becomes an empty ritual for me, not that the notion of it isn't compelling from time to time. My difficulty has been, I think, laying hold of someone who is too young, too taken with me and too vulnerable but willing to jump off that cliff without thinking. And I drag them along. I would rather be alone than to cause that sort of damage again, even if it's simply a part of their life. I don't want to be someone's everything.
