Staying Away From Arrangements Of Bliss - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Few relationships are partnerships at all.
And beyond wedding gifts...
Marriages are more conveniences,
For someone's purpose to circumvent!

Those in unions who share with an openness,
Seem more chemically suited...
To be united together like this.

Others who join in matrimony,
Have agendas and timetables to meet.
The lure of being with anyone...
Depends more on the hunt,
And a game to win over to defeat.

Competitve are these false companionships.
It's not long after they begin...
Nothing surprises to hear of a riff that splits.

Those in unions who share with an openness,
Seem more chemically suited...
To be united together like this.

And those who have been burned,
By an array of 'assessments'...
Are more likely than not,
To appear after the healing...
To be the happiest.

And staying away from arrangements of bliss.
With eyes wide open.
And wrists in bandages after being slit.

'Oh?
These?
I cut myself shaving! '
