I read a post by Foxes and Poems called ‘A Poem About Oblivion’. It triggered my thoughts about relationships and how they can be so toxic at times. I find it sad that people get caught up in unhealthy relationships, oftentimes unaware of the problem until too much is invested to make a clean break.
I’m not making judgements, who am I to do that? I am simply presenting thoughts that have been triggered many times while reading posts of those I follow. My hope is that they were works of fiction, although I know, many were not. I cannot apologize for the hurts inflicted by uncaring partners, but I would if I could.
Men are beasts…
...But, not all of us I don't know what you see in us, we predate, calculate, can't relate. We are hopeless, but, no, you are our hope, our salvation from base predilections and savage impulses. You buoy us, balance us, care for us, at your own expense. Why? What do you find in us that's irresistible, irreplaceable, redeemable? Is it the challenge the thrill, the danger of allowing yourself to be engulfed in a maelstrom of pheromones and carnal desire? Is it love or need of validation that draws you like the butterfly to the flame into the arms of the man from Stockholm? He will give you neither and leave behind your white hot ashes.
Please go to Foxes and Poems and read or listen to April’s post!
