It takes Two, you know, to make it work. It only takes One, though, to make it fracture. There’s a splinter in our soul, a mar in your mind, but you can’t see it. I never attack, I never defend. If you’re sick of me, just say, just go, just don’t pretend. Anxiety fills my journey home, what will I say that sets you off this time? An invite from a friend, you disapprove, how rude, that I should have a life. A call from my family, you roll your eyes, no disguising, your inconvenienced feelings. You have no marital tie, no steel chain to me, so you would go, if you wanted to, wouldn’t you? So I stay, hoping you will change your ways. You were never like this at the beginning, even after four years in waiting. I have accepted long-term relationship flaws, but you’re having young lover withdrawals. You want to fight the stereotype, you want to be different. Don’t you see the patterns of life? Don’t you feel the silk threads that connect us. It’s oh so fragile, basic & true that no-one, not even you, can undo. If you want to fight then fight elsewhere. I’m tired & worn, but my body & soul hold on. It won’t be long, before I can’t take anymore. Because, you see, it takes Two, not One, or soon our Two might become None.
