Love

Yes, I get drunk every night

And delete her number

And put her on my extensive blacklist

To block her calls

But in the morning

I unblock her again

And punch her number

Back into my phone

It’s called love.

Got something of the 'ouroboros' about this, Craig - perfect for a nihilist . . . the recurrence of Yin/Yang themes.

Thanks Jobe. She is a funny and complicated woman, just what one needs in a muse.

And I love this poem, Craig - simple, effective, to the point, and really moving.

Thanks, HJFURL. It is really just another attempt at cynical humour.

Yeah, unfortunately we're weak like that more often than strong; excellent, Craig

Thanks, Mike. I am vaguely getting my act together, but I can't help the occasional lapse into cynicism.

I think many have experienced this in life. It's just the way life and relationships of any kind go.
