The Misfits

Opposites attract... 

A theory that has been proved by science. And often dramatized by the films and novels that we read. Doesn't  it feel wonderful and unreal, that the protagonists of these beautiful love stories are complete strangers, belonging to backgrounds that are world apart, brought up by parents that have nothing in common. Even then, after fighting, arguing and never seeing eye to eye over anything, eventually they end up falling in love.In the moment that they realise that, they love each other because they love each other's eccentricities and habits and what nots.

In real life, can the two lovers survive the challenge of being totally opposite? To fall in love and then to realise that the love is there and so is the passion, but also realizing that if you stay together you will end up biting each others head off. In that case-  How long can you keep on fighting, crying and hating each other and in the next moment, loving and making it up all over again.
Unfortunately, I don't know.

But I do know that, the harsh reality of life, as it stands is- that in today's world, the ego rules the roost. None of the partners will ever compromise, or maybe they  do- but just to an extent. The flexibility of adjusting to each other has reduced with the increase in the working hours and the cut- throat competition in our little world. And, instead of working upon the relationship and giving each other a chance, suddenly the same guy/ gal who was the love of your life becomes the enemy.  And the time you were to spend with each other you spend in the court levelling allegations and getting a divorce.
Even the ones who were perfect- Become the "Misfits"!
Ironical isn't it?

~Instead of finding some one perfect, just find someone perfect for yourself~

And I know I have found that "Perfect Someone" for me!

**********************************************************************************

I love Love
I love being in love
I don't care what it does to me


Take these tattered boxes

that used to hold your clothes
Break them down
Build them back up with your bones
All you did was construct a mess
You're good to me when only flesh
You're a memory with nothing to show



When we would take trips
We swore we'd never take pictures
Pictures only prove you can't convince
Now I wish those photographs
could convince you that what we had

would only turn out a negative

well
well
well


If fingertips are relationships

then I could barely carry your weight
If fingers are mistakes
Don't use this one to point the blame
Just sing
sing



I love love

I love being in love
I don't care what it does to me
These pills are fine to pass the time
'til I find my new drug
Then
We'll take our chances
we'll last a month
we'll never speak again



How I love being in love



And don't pick up the line

You're dressed to have a good time
you don't need him, you need to be seen
so someone else can treat you wrong
so you my love can sing this song



I love love

I love being in love
I don't care what it does to me
These pills are fine to pass the time
'til I find my new drug
Then
They'll take advantage
I'll claim that's what I want



To be the new statistic



How I love

How I love
How I love being in love



Take these tattered boxes

That used to hold your clothes
Break them down
Build them back up with your bones
All you did was construct a mess
you're dead to me if love is death
You're a memory with nothing to show



WELL

WELL
WELL



If fingertips are relationships

Then maybe I could use a break
She smiles
She points at me
she says:
Baby I love how you sing
so just
sing



I love love

I love being in love
I don't care what it does to me
These pills are fine to pass the time
'til I find my new drug
Then
We'll take our chances
we'll rise above
we'll last until the end



How I love

How I love
How I love being in love

omg...this makes me wonder if all is okay in love land?
though you kinda console by saying that you've found someone perfect for u...i hope n pray the perfection last n u both remain sensible enough to skim thru the ruffles that would come time n again...

Sakshi,

Well, Well , Well. Well said. True, the fast pace of life and eagerness to reach top quickly nicely flavoured with EGO is taking toll of personal life of almost everyone these days. The secret of success in relationships is, in my opion, to leave what is your office in OFFICE and let home be HOME. Not easy but not impossible too. And every couple does fight sometime or the other and I can say this with conviction as in our 40th year of marriage we still differ many a times but do also try to make allowance for each other.

Take care
