Sunday Poser #62

Today’s question:

Have you ever been hurt by your expectations?’

In my youth I lived two houses over from a Catholic

Church.

Early in a brand new school year I went with friends

to sign up for CCD class (Catechism).

To register a parent had to fill out the required form.

My Mother simply told me I couldn’t attend without

sharing a reason then placed the paperwork in the

trash.

Determined to learn about religion each Sunday I

attended Mass.

At first it was scary since I had no idea what to expect.

I watched other parishioners and since not an official

member knew better than proceed to the Altar for

Communion.

When I turned eighteen, I registered for adult religious

classes.

It wasn’t until my father passed away that I learned the

reason Church was off limits.

I had a half-brother. This was my dad’s second marriage.

Back in the 50s and 60s people rarely spoke about marital

indiscretions.

Above is one of numerous incidents throughout life that

created extreme distrust in humans.

Tired of Fakes

Looking new love connection
Down-to-earth good direction

Timing, intangible hex entity
Onboard prior faceless flex enemy

Revelation personal inopportune
Expectations harmonious fail bloom

Unknowns masqueraded behind PCs peep
Unfortunate assortment pics utmost creeps

Shame man seem nice 'til conversational screwup
Monogamous reluctant mere in search FWBs hookup 

Lusting after demoiselle promiscuous fruitcake
Wrong profile clicked on - wise woman no flake

Take self plus supply magical blue thrill pills
Bypass door no interest turn shades blue pastel

Fashionista private agency idea near future hire
Expensive decision background checked magnifiers.

Shambles

Virtual garden freeze
Profile deactivation please

Grown tired of fakes
Unsightly gruesome flakes

Feelings concrete shutdown
Desire grieve solely shown

Innermost feelings reflect
Questionable faith conflict

Capacity full emotional space
Memories loss 23 years ago face

Compassion, empathy, reality
Continual loss no fun actuality

Never expect anything from anyone
Expectations seem always hurt someone.

Mid-life Change

Marriage interlock
Divorce broken-heart

Teardrops shed
Heartfelt bled

Desire tranquility
Distasteful reality

Miss Analytical
Attitude cynical

Heart healed
Memories sealed

Reasonable timespan
Dating expectations

Rehearse anew
Refrain misconstrue

Disappointment deja-vu
Misrepresentation fiasco

Pas de deux true
Formidable out-of-view.
