Afraid to break the bonds
I glance around and wonder, as couples sit around,
as they fawn and coo in pleasure, if true happiness is found.
I have never been a double set, just me, myself, alone,
and for me to actually seek it... is to draw blood from a stone.
I've heard rumours and vague stories, of deep friendships, tried and true,
shattered by three simple words; they just said "I love you."
But as it was not true love, a simple infatuation,
it left the other party stunned, and in an awkward situation.
I wish not to hurt my female friends (as I am the straight persuasion),
and if I'm asked to 'join' them, I won't advance the situation.
Some of you may call me strange, it is irrational fear,
but I want to keep my friendships, the people I hold dear.
Until love comes and finds me, I'll keep to this, my place,
and not crumble under pressure; I'll go at my own pace...

The man's hands were clammy, his handshake limp. Rumpled suit, porkpie hat, briefcase... oh Jes-- oh dear, a salesman. God's smile slipped a little but He soldiered on gamely. With luck He could shoo the poor guy away in a few minutes.
"So, what can I do for you?"
The man sat, briefcase across his knees. "Sector 2-7-0! Everyone's talking about it! What do you call it? Man and merman?"
"Man and woman, actually. And thanks. But we're pretty busy around here, and..."
"Oh! Right! No time for the wicked, eh?" The salesman winked and popped his briefcase,
