Late that night, I cherished when S++ was reading my poetry with his utmost expressions.How often do we get a chance when an energetic vernacular poet reads your poetry loud out.I was in total awe when he started reading his own work.I don’t remember when and how we jumped into one conversation to another. It was past one a.m. in night and I am never up that late enjoying the conversations. it was that moment when I asked us to retire to bed, as we moved from my drawing area to kitchen,I remember us talking on relationships and monogamy. Last I remember, it was around 2 am when we came out of the kitchen to bed.
what was that we talked about….
I will just concise his thought process which followed my never lasting love for my ex.
S++ (i am keeping my friend’s name discreet) has evolved as a great artist out of his own philosophy and lonely childhood. He has a limited set of rules which defines him profoundly. One of them is solitude. He often retires to his solitude where he shut downs himself into his world of literature and art. The repercussions of that behavior leads him to get misunderstood by many. how he defines relationship is partly similar to my ex, but what makes him standout is understated. I will cite them in two points:
1. he is polygamous and doesn’t believe in monogamy
2. he gets attracted to intellectual intercourse
Sounds similar what my ex used to say to me:
on retaliation about polygamy he said, I don’t believe in monogamy, and humans are not meant to be monogamous. BUT in case he finds a right partner, and he feels that this is the person, he seeks to spend rest of his life with. he wont hesitate to be monogamous. For that right person he can choose to be what he is not. provided he loves her.
My remark: My ex, Had we loved each other to that intensity or is monogamy just a social norm which is tough to be followed?
My ex often used to say that intellectual inter-courses are very arousing, but what I found out was physical inter-courses with rickshaw wallas and teens.
My remark: the new world term Intellectual intercourses are only for snobbish people who are overly articulated (mind well, it has no concern with education) and consider them out of league thinkers. they design their own thinking and reproduce it as a change maker for society. Period!!!
Anyhow I can write a lot here, but what I derived here is that point 1 & 2 are their statements which has hidden sub clauses. one has to read the contract of relationship in depth and dealt before signing in. As it is always said, mutual benefits are subjected to market risk.
Next time, when you make a promise, promise more that the hidden sub-clauses are subjected to evaluation.
