I Need A Partner


The Wolf and I were sitting the other evening, philosophizing about relationships and what we look for in them.  We both know of people who seem to lurch from one relationship crisis to another and were reflecting on that phenomena over a glass of wine.  The following came to me from that discussion.  

One other clarification may be necessary I am not a religious Badger.  While I do believe in a Divine Power I do not believe in a personal God so "God" in the poem below could either be a request to a Divine Being for that partner or it could be that phrase of frustration "God!"  I leave it to you the reader to decide which you prefer.

God, I need a partner in my life
Someone who will listen when I whinge and complain and moan
Someone who will not point out that I am whining and complaining and moaning
Someone who will take my misery as seriously as I take it myself.

God I need a partner in my life
Who will not bore me with their whining, complaining and moaning.
Who will not always make it about them, their issues or concerns
Who will get over themselves and not take themselves so seriously.

God I need a partner in my life
Someone who knows what I am feeling before I feel it
Someone who is happy when I am happy and sad when I am sad
Someone who gives me space for me.

God I need a partner in my life
Who will not expect me to be happy when they are happy or sad when they are sad
Who will not tell me what they are feeling because then I might have to care
Who has the decency to go and find their own space than take up mine.

God I need a partner in my life
Someone who knows when I like to be intimate
Someone who knows exactly how to arouse me though I can’t be bothered to tell them
Someone who will make the bedroom all about me

God I need a partner in my life
Who will not make demands on me
Who will not expect me to know how to please them or tell me what they like
Who will have the decency to realize the bedroom isn't all about them

God I need a partner in my life
Someone who will see my brilliance
Someone who will tell me I’m wonderful
Someone who will delude me with the delusion of my grandeur

God I need a partner in my life
Who is not as brilliant as me
Who is not as wonderful as I am
Who has no delusions.

God I need a partner in my life
Or perhaps just a very small planet
Inhabited by me!
