Say it ain't so...

I don't know if I can keep doing this. How long do you stay in a bad relationship? At what point do you realize that things aren't going to get better, that if anything, they're going to get worse? You try to convince yourself that it can be salvaged, that there's hope. Hope dies last right? But what about not trying to save the drowning man lest you drown yourself? I know that it's technically not the definition of insanity but some people like to define it as doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. It's definitely a form of mental illness, of madness, it's an affliction. I don't know, I'm rambling now. I'm broken-hearted, I distraught. I know there are worse things, I know that life will go on, but I don't know if I can keep on doing the same thing and expecting different results. I don't know if I can stay loyal, stay faithful, and keep my promises much longer. It's taking everything I've got to keep myself from going into the closet and burning all of the clothes, all of the mementos, anything that reminds me of the relationship.

Maybe I'll just sleep on it, maybe I'll feel different in the morning, I don't know. Hell, even animals will only take so much, so many beatings, so much pain before they flee or fight.

For the time being I'm through believing, fuck next year, fuck baseball, and fuck the Cubs.

i was a die-hard cubs fan
growing up. followed them game
by painful game for years
and years
and years. when they finally got
to the championship round against the
florida marlins i was in full-cubby-nation
pride mode. i was a fist pumping,
game watching,
"finally" feeling fan.

then the whole bartman debacle
turned the team in to the mush i'd known
them to be for oh-so-many years.

THAT was the season where i vowed,

since then,
i watch the cubs casually,
as a sports/baseball fan - NOT
as a cubs fan. it is this new mindset
that allows me to watch this epic meltdown
that is the 2008 season with only mild
disdain. i attended a number of exciting
games this season, watched a number of others
on the television...and kept my mind and heart
in check.

like running in to an old girlfriend
who you realize full well is committed
to some total loser. you watch
with mild concern. but do not attach
your heart to the emotions.

next year? psh. there will NEVER
be a next year. just more of the same
cub-cursed ups and downs
that will always net the same results.

Re: i
Awesome. I've been keeping up but haven't been commenting much, I did the whole circle tour this summer and some of your posts/pics have been reminding me of it.

Thanks. At least you've still got a chance at Torre beating the BoSox. At least I've still got the Bears.
