A heart living ... on the outside looking in ...
finding a soul, willing to pay the price for this momentary sin.
Understanding eyes have seen all the things this heart is missing,
love's old promises slowly fade ... reducing a tired heart to reminiscing.
For a moment like this, for just one kiss ... what would a lonely heart trade,
can contentment be held, without breaking love's past promises made.
Intrigue and fascination slow dance with desire and temptation,
an ever faithful heart now looks for the reasons to deny this invitation.
Honest intentions defined, no quandaries left to linger,
expectation and anticipation entwine like lovers interlocking fingers.
No strings attached, no questions asked, take one long, last glance,
still an aching heart does wonder the true cost of a second chance.
For these questions of the heart, the answers may define ...
though the heart will always ask of the moment that love fell into decline.
Commitment or contentment, can a hurting heart separate the two ...
while living on the outside looking in ... and still looking out at you.
Do you live by the book, do you play by the rules
Do you care what is thought by others about you
If this day is all that is promised to you
Do you live for the present, the future the past...
