Scylla and Charybdis

Life is short, but we foolishly disregard that for ambitious, complicated, aggressive romance. Is this a trick we play on love or ourselves? And furthermore, can anyone be too smart for love? Too unwilling to crumble? I try to remember how quickly it fades, if I can. I hold onto movie music and repeat learned lines, choreograph dances under the sheets, bite your lip until it’s over. It will almost always be over until it is.
