you are that poem that I've always wanted to write
you know.. the corny one
about soul mates and fantasy fairy tale endings
in it I'd pour out my deepest sentiments
hoping that somewhere somehow you exist
and when you find me, we'd ride off into the sunset
and live happily ever
except here we are
not so happily trapped within the lines of
a trianle joined together by him
the reason for our discreet meetings
meetings that have become less discreet
and more profound
with every encounter you claim me
yet he has no idea
purposely choosing to ignore the fact
that I am slipping away fast
and you are more than just a friend
more than just this guy from class
and he is probably more than I deserve
for he has the courage to love unconditionally
offering only the best of himself
while I offer him your leftovers
left over from the last time you
looked into my eyes and took every piece
of me that you could carry and
I gave it to you willingly
but he didnt willingly fall in love
with a woman who's soul was destined
to mate with someone else
and when his tears fall
are you prepared to be the cause?
because I am
ready and willing to face
the rumored wrath of karma
as long as you'll hold my hand
his pain will one day pass
but this
this thing we have won't
this undeniable urge to
recklessly risk it all
and fall madly in selfish love
has me ready to committ to you
selflessly
with you I feel passion
and while passion isn't enough
to keep him from loving me

it's enough to inspire me to
finally write this poem
 
and
you wrote me
in ways that no one else could
you stood
on the precipice of tomorrow
and followed your heart
to a brand new start

you wrote me

giving new life and meaning
to menial words
of love and passion
in reaction
to heart and soul
as rejection meets the cold
cold ice
of a story long told
one told so long ago

you wrote me

to sing your song
of new beginnings
and fairytale endings
and love ever lasting
yet, still
you're asking

is this passion

...enough?
