You Don't Bring Me Flower Anymore

"What do you mean by this?"
"Time to go home."
"You think this is a game?"
"I don't, but you do."
"What the fuck are you talking bout?"
"Enough already. We both know this can't go on. Someone has to make the last call."
"Can't we sit down and talk things over?"
"There is nothing left to be talked about. All this years, we have already spend all the things we can talk about."
"So, this is it?"
"Yea, I guess so."
"Will we still be friends?"
"I don't know. Probably. But I don't think I'll be seeing you anytime soon though."
"Where are you going?"
"Bought a ticket to Bali next week."
"You've planned this all along?"
"We both know it all along, just a matter of time."

When one has gone through good times and bad times together, one would naturally think that the relationship would last forever. But when all the sparks has been exhausted, there really is nothing left to sustain the relationship. Maybe that's the problem with gay relationship, there is no commitment to constrain us like a straight relationship does. But that would mean that no gay men would find lasting happiness. That's something daunting to take in.

Instead of just staying together as if there is still love there, wouldn't it be better to just let go of each other. To free each other and let each other seek out their next destiny.

The relationship is a milestone, but life is a long journey with death as the final destination. We should not linger too long in a place even though we are very comfortable in that place. A stagnant relationship, however comfortable it is, is not something that anyone should hold on to. Nobody is at fault here. If the real reason must be disclosed, it would just make life miserable for everyone. Why don't just let it be? Think of it as an expired can meat, just throw it away and forget about it. Easier said then done, but think of the health complication if you eat an expired meat.
