You couldn’t help yourself.
The temptation was too strong.
The stakes were high, your heart at risk.
I seemed too delectable a treat to miss out on.
You told yourself, there had to be a flaw somewhere,
If only you could find it, you’d be free again.
Word after word, one laugh after another,
Seconds turned to hours,
You realized you had stopped looking for flaws
Quite a while ago. You were there with me
That was all that mattered.
