    attracted to you
    that i am

    but ashamed of this feeling
    is more overwhelming than my heart can hold

    because see i know that "your" kind
    has never caught my attention

    and it has got to be a sin
    to want you the way i do

    now why i feel this
    i can't begin to explain

    all i know is liking you
    will cost me more than i can afford

    the realization of a change of lifestyle
    has come to mind

    but then the sight of you
    makes me say "****" it all

    cause it is YOU that has caught my eye
    not that ***** yakin' in my ear

    but your sensuality and personality
    that i can closely relate to in more ways than one

    but once again that is where the problem lies
    the problem is i am not supposed to be attracted to you

    because see you have always been
    taught to me as a "no no" growing up

    but now you have come along
    and **** i want you bad

    it hurts to be attracted
    to the unobtainable

    so i just ponder of the
    what if's
    the what could
    be

    between you and me

    the attraction

    is it mutual

    cause see i know i am your type

    but the problem here

    is my attraction for you is
    considered unattractive for my type

    (think deeper on this one)

    <appears suddenly>

    How deep should I think? So many things come to mind when I read this. So many "what if's", talk about unnecessary stress. And types? What type is anyone really? We are all adaptable. Sometimes it's the person that is outside our type that is the person we have been searching for "in our types" for all our life. Hmmm...did that make sense? We never know if something or someone is unobtainable until we try. And then sometimes we are attracted to people that we know are wrong for us. That's the feeling I get when reading this. A deep attraction to the wrong type of person.

    I mean you no harm
    But I'll keep you safe and warm
    engulf you in my passion
    seduce you with intimacy
    you want me and I want you
    we both want to do what lovers do
    instead of being bothered through life with what if's
    make it happen
    for we only live once...

    Step into the light...
