It's a certain fact that
People get hurt all over
There are car accidents
And domestic abuse
And worst of all
Child abuse
So why set yourself up
Knowing that during the "fall"
It's euphoric
You think it will continue forever
Then one day
you wake up with a loud bang
And there's dirty laundry piled
Everywhere you look
There hasn't been a clean dish
In the house in days
The ashtrays are overflowing
Oh how cute! The cottage cheese
Is growing kittens
The plant you never liked is dead
And there's a funny smell coming
From somewhere down the hall
And you are NOT going to investigate
Who is that person asleep on your floor
Amongst the beer bottles
And piles of pillows?
And as for your bed
Well, it's empty
He decided that his receptionist
Looked better in a bikini.

Yeah, ain't love grand?

This reminds of what Ambrose Bierce wrote:

LOVE, n.

A temporary insanity curable by marriage or by removal of the patient from the influences under which he incurred the disorder. This disease, like caries and many other ailments, is prevalent only among civilized races living under artificial conditions; barbarous nations breathing pure air and eating simple food enjoy immunity from its ravages. It is sometimes fatal, but more frequently to the physician than to the patient.

--Ambrose Bierce "The Devil's Dictionary"

I know what you mean sometimes it is best to go around with a closed heart. i have done it for about 15 yrs and so i think i am better off

um, it's good, it doesn't seem to be meant as humorous, it has a taste of anger and bitterness. I know those feelings well, myself.

hi lara, nice to see you again, and your rosy outlook is right on as usual, thats why they call it falling, they forget that sudden crash and burn at the end of the fall

This is so funny but true--something weird happens when you get married and this wonderful love can turn into such a chore. J
Reviewed by Angelina Arroyo 10/17/2002
A bitter taste of reality. I feel the humor, but, dirty laundry ain't no joke when it's been put out for all to see. Of course, I'm not talking about the washing machine kind, but you got to love to have it to put out.
