so beautiful
so tempting
but my words would fail
my world would fall apart

I have been down this road before
and it left the deepest scars
in my soul but
still I am tempted by you
by your smile
by your soul
by the sunshine in your hair
everything about you draws me in
makes me want you
know you
intertwine my soul with yours
blending into a new being
that we create and nurture

time would only bind
with fine silver chains
the love we would share
so beautiful
so tempting
but I am too afraid to share
all that I am with you
because you are now tied to another

as I watch in pain
knowing you are happy
but still I am tempted
by your smile
and by the beauty of your soul
