Dancing On The Edge Of Desire

A yearning from the past
A resurrection of lust
Lingering mysteries
A prevention of trust

A timeless conflict
Between desire and fear
A lack of certainty
Depresses the atmosphere

A decade of doubt
Refuses to be buried
Was the decision correct?
The answers are varied

She was open yet distant
Seductive but elusive
Both available and busy
Not exactly conducive

An interest was expressed
But plans were always tentative
Should I have taken a risk?
A view that remains argumentative

A tiring back and forth
As these feelings stay mixed
Several lengthy absences
The problem still isn’t fixed

Was it an adventure in waiting?
An invitation to explore?
Or was inevitable disappointment
Always hiding behind her door?

It’s a puzzle with missing pieces
A report with blacked out pages
Too impossible to recover
We’re now at different stages
