A blog about whatever randomosity my fevered mind conceives.

Across the Room

I saw him there across the room

And knew at once my fate.

I tried to warn myself astray

But the warning came too late.

I knew it best to run away;

To disappear and hide;

But something there within his essence

Had already got inside.

He looked at me with azure eyes

And ‘come hither’ on his grin

And though I knew the wiser path

I went ahead and let him in.

I sensed it all within a beat

And knew that I was doomed

Yet on I moved – this eager fool –

Despite the pain that loomed.

So hungry was I to taste the passion

That my wisdom was soon lost.

And though it was, I sensed the danger

I thought I was prepared to pay the cost.

I was just enough a fool to follow

As he led me with desire,

But if I knew then what I know now

Would I have jumped into the fire?

Ahh… but saw him there, across the room,

And I hungered for his kiss.

I knew it safer to hang back

But I craved to feel that bliss.

So into the dance, I blindly stumbled;

Too eager to believe;

And by the time that dance was over,

I ached to watch him leave.
