hierarchy of needs

I was a little more laid back then

the optimism of youth maybe

that things would work out

life would unfold in all its glory

satisfy me

& she was a beautiful woman

of that there was little doubt

& I had ideas on how to be with her

give & share stuff together grow

little did I know

there was to be a hierarchy

of needs

her plans versus my plans

her wants versus my easy flow

there could only be one winner

& yes I was a little slow

to catch on

so it comes as no surprise

when I didn’t follow the path

laid out simply in front of me

she did of course

let me go
