Morticia and Gomez are my favorite (fictional) couple on the planet. Yes, it is true… Once upon a time it was Romeo and Juliet whose story so wooed my amorous heart. But, alas, they met so tragic an end that it felt utterly senseless to yearn for such a love – noble it was, but so star-crossed.
After many ill-suited years, I vowed that all which enamored me of their love would, instead, be discharged. Those Gothic paramours, whom I have adored from childhood…so much more suited to life-(as in, living!)-long love.
Is it wrong to aspire to so lofty a post as to silence a lover’s demons. . ?
I think not.
