Bashert

Word of the Day for Sunday, March 2, 2008

bashert
adjective
\b'SHEYRT\
Yiddish

destined
fated
soulmate

soulmates?
i was never real big on the concept.
but fated?
oh yeah.
there's no other explanation.

why else
at that very hour
on that very night
would he cruise DC's craigslist
for the very first time?

why else, given barely
a hint of my BDSM fantasies,
would he select from his library of
e-mail accounts the address that
puns on The Story of O?

why else would the fates
or God
or whatever
Universiperversity brought us together
have chosen two such seemingly disparate souls
if not to rub our faces in
our lack of choice in the matter?

bashert is when you try to break up
three time in a year
but
just
can't.

bashert is when nothing and no one can keep you apart.
not really.

bashert means you just have to submit to fate.
even if you're a dom.

bashert means there's no way out.
bashert means accepting that you
don't really want one.

we have no choice.
might as well be happy.
