Spitting in the Kook-Ade

I made a promise
I intended with all my heart
To keep

You spit in it
Like you’d spit in
The third coke refill
For a customer
You already knew
Wasn’t leaving a tip

I thought I was drinking
The kool-ade
Of our relationship
With it Pledging
Loyalty to death
not realizing
It was itself
the very poison

No longer will I
Look for eternity
In the bottom
Of a chalice

But with goggles
Made of shot glasses
Will now always remember
The temporary nature
Of love

Uhm. Don't know what that defines but I think I'll just move on. "spit in
The third coke refill
For a customer
You already knew
Wasn’t leaving a tip" sure about that huh?

Not sure what you’re asking. Can you clarify?

@JTony I ran restaurants for 15 years. That line just hit me in the wrong way. I didn't read past that

@Lincoln55 sorry if I struck a nerve. The image is just a metaphor of how my wife treated our wedding vows, expecting them to fail from the start and poisoning them just as soon. Sorry it is a harsh triggering image for you. It is for me, too.

Love lasts as long as lust, income to the manner aspired and children to hook you for life. Enjoy your illusion.

Again, I’m not sure what you’re trying to say. Don’t mean to be obtuse, but can you further explain? Your post seems angry or at least antagonistic and I’m not sure why. Particularly the ,”enjoy your illusion,” part. I’m not understanding.

@JTony Apologies, my shorthand!
Love lasts :

  • as long as lust lasts (rarely longer than 18 months).
  • as long as your income continues to support to the manner aspired to.
  • love lasts long enough to copulate to produce children in order to have you hooked as means of paternal love, financial support, emotional toy to be played with, for the length of childhood of each offspring.
    Enjoy your illusion means if you think differently to my definitions then enjoy it. To me it is no different to those who believe that they will have everlasting life, heaven and a seat at Jesus's table when they die, whoops such believers do not die they "pass" don't they to everlasting life don't they.
