Why must we always keep searching for that all perfect eutopia?

Looking for "the one", our soul mate, the one who completes us.

Such an exhausting journey with no guarantee of fruition.

Is it honestly really worth all the frustration, the heartache the pain.

 

That initial adrenaline rush when you meet someone new that catches your attention.

Curiosity that maybe, finally, you have found what you've been searching for.

Everything is new, pristine and perfect at this moment in time;

But, will it last a day, a week, a month;  a lifetime seems like such a long long time.

 

Is that what we are addicted to; that initial "wow" feeling that sets our heads spinning?

Are we, after our first taste of this, junkies for the rest of our life;

Continually looking and craving just one more fix, just one more little taste of paradise.

Only to be disappointed time after time, lonely and sad once again.

 

Such lovely wonderful highs at the beginning and such extreme lows at the end.

When we realize that, no, this yet again, is not the person that i want to spend eternity with.

So then comes the mindset that I am done with this search, this time for good.

I no longer want to play this game because I never seem to be able to win.

 

We settle back in to a normal routine, day to day life going through the motions.

Pretending to be happy, content and complete; telling ourselves we don't need another fix.

Then, out of the blue, a chance encounter with someone turns into something more.

Once again, that door to the heart has been opened, so where do we go from here?
