Amen... Looking for more.
I don't know... Or swear off men entirely.
I'm on the fence.

The latter sounds good but fails in practice.
I think when a relationship breaks apart people wonder why they were ever attracted to the other person. Unpredictability drew him in and also repelled him.....I like the dichotomy here. You have a special knack for saying a lot in just a few words, KL. Lydi**

Aww thanks you are too kind.
Sometimes it is exactly the characteristic that drew you in the first place, that drives you crazy later on....Kind of like two sides of the same coin. But it is not that person's fault for being who they are. We can and should only try to change ourselves. By changing the way we look at each other and the world, we can change our attitudes and intolerance...and maybe recapture what we saw in the first place.
Who would prefer predictable over unpredictable? He's not even making any rational sense. I love the song you paired with this, and I love the way you presented this as the middle of a conscious thought...it had a dream-like quality to it. Very nice.

Thank you, I like that.
like Dale said...if we are drawn to someone, it is because of who that person is...so why do we try to make that person into someone different once we are in a relationship....makes no sense.

It's that whole rubbing the powder off the wings syndrome, and then we wonder why she can't fly.
Funny how people fall for someone for who they are but then try to change them. Someone calls me normal I would take it as an insult.

Yes, isn't that the truth. Clipping of the wings I suppose.
'and look' And looks or to look' me thinks. And we all long for more but swhen we find someone in our soul we stop looking.

Nope, and look is what I meant
I decided a long time ago, straight lines are boring...it's those curvy lines that keeps me dancing through daydreams...

Thank you as always.
Unpredicatability is a synonym of relationships for years I wore a white shirt with my name in an environment that had to be predictable and you would laugh at the amount of things that just go wrong on a daily basis. I think even the planets orbits are finally unpredicatable. Predictability is something that works on paper on on living dynamics.

Thankyou

You are right of course, thank you for reading and reviewing.
Something tells me I know what this is about. You are correct KLGoode, thoughts, ideas and even words never come in straight lines, at least deep down they don't. A really cool piece.
