The Latter

In the end, a couple has two options:

they either break up or they get married.

When I look for a relationship,

I firmly believe it will end in the latter,

until they give me a reason not to.

I’m not one to run. I hate exercise.

So if I’m chasing someone it’s for good cause.

It’s because I can clearly see the future

and it’s better because they’re in it.

I’m not one to let go of a good thing

or throw away gold in the trash.

I’m not here to be wasteful.

I’m not here for fun and games.

Life is serious and a challenge. So am I.

I want someone by my side to help face it

because any good puzzle requires

both time and commitment to solve.

Relationships are puzzles people face.

They take lifetimes to solve.

They get easier when you have

more pieces to put in place.

So why give up before you’ve even started?

Why break up a puzzle when

you can see the image at the end?

You’ll never get there.

I want the latter.

I want to solve the puzzle.
