Water or Wood?

Your eyes looking into mine are like a magnifying glass

That focuses the sun into a tiny dot that first created an ember

Which grew into the wild fire that burns in my heart.

I am hypnotized into bringing more and more wood to the fire

Before I look around at the blaze, and being caught off guard at the size it has grown to.

Your connection feeds the fire.

I start throwing water at the flames.

At first, it all seems to turn straight to steam with no visible effect.

After a while, my restraint seems to begin to diminish the flames

But your connection makes me want to surrender and just let it burn up.

“Water or wood?”, that is the question.

So about me... I'm a middle-aged guy, married 15+ years with kids. I love my wife, and have never so much as kissed another woman the entire time we have been married. When we first met, we had both been cheated on, and we decided that we would not cheat on each other. I think we have both teetered on the edge. Like most married couples, over the years, we have given each other plenty of reasons to build resentment at times. So this space is a personal reflection of my journey of attempting to remain married and true. That's why I started this first-ever blog. The goal is to avoid sounding like one of those "perfect" articles of someone who sounds like they are giving advice. This all comes from personal experience or from talking to other people, married and single, and I want to keep it raw. To me that's more exciting than a well-researched topic. Everyone can relate to this on a human level. I know that guys like to get to the point, and ladies like a good story with plenty of details, so I'll try to find a balance. Strap in and let's ride!
