At the Crossroads of Transition
I have been smitten and there’s no denying it
I’m weak kneed and vulnerable, it’s true.
Whatever the price for this feeling, I’m buying it,
but no sale if it’s not being felt with you.
I’m an old hand at lust and one night stands,
attachments have never gotten their grip on me.
I was always careful in designing escape plans,
maintaining a male existence, fast and free.
Never paid much attention to loving moments
heard in a love song, just background noise.
Now these new feelings bubble and foment,
my escape route’s blocked, I’ve no choice.
It’s got me thinking of poetry, flowers and such,
instead of a quick burger and fries on the run.
These are feelings I’ve never dealt with much,
I’m scared, but there beckons elements of fun.
Many of my former running mates have met this fate
and wound up doing the matrimonial two step.
I could cut and run, but I fear it’s far too late,
the warming feeling demands that my heart accept.
I can’t look in your mesmerizing eyes and deny
that I want to take these feelings to the next stage.
Now these feelings felt at this crossroads comply
with the giddy feelings this former cad must engage.
Reality hits and it hits hard, love is a powerful pull.
The escape artist can’t slip away this time.
You’ve softened my edge and made my heart full
I’m almost speechless but not quite a mime.
Take my outreaching hand and fly off with me
to the land where common sense takes a licking.
You’ve succeeded in stripping the desire to be free,
for you my heart beats like freedom’s clock ticking.
How do I know all of this is true, I’ll try to explain?
When not with you I can’t sleep or take any meals.
I feel stark loneliness that approximates real pain,
all these foreign manifestations this bachelor feels.
I’m ready to walk this path as dual shadows with you
for without you with me I’m a total emotional wreck.
Your hand in mine feels of something way overdue
words heard in a love song shall accompany our trek.
