Is there a better life, a better love out there?
Or do we just trade one set of quirks for an unknown set?
Surely there must exist a partner with positives that outweigh the quirks,
& whose quirks are not intolerable negatives.
Am I a lovable, misunderstood soul
or just a miserable, selfish bastard?
Hey, I write poetry & talk of feelings!
Isn't THAT worth something?
If we can't find it in here,
will we ever find it out there?
