If we do

I can see him yet we’ve never met
The thought of the greeting is bringing me to sweat
I can hear him a voice on a phone line
Should I continue to, or decline? 
We are miles away in different places
With only a photo to put names to faces 
His dreams and aspirations he shares for now
Should I try to forget this somehow?
A responsible father a husband home alone
Somewhere in a room concealed in the zone
Trying to feed his humanity and family alike  
Pen to paper, pencils to sketch movement in a passion
I can feel him and relate to his creativity 
Is it an addiction or just sexual curiosity?   
Two people lost in a web of life
One with a husband the other with a wife
Will they ever meet?
And sip the wine of deceit  
The fear, the excitement of the possibilities 
Falling into the arms of discreet liabilities
If we do

    This is a write that many will be able to relate with on one level or another. Vivid imagery and can feel the confusion emanating...thanks so much for sharing and for your kind comments on my work~Mary

    If these two people are unhappy why do they live in this unhappy state. To cause deceit is not the way to solve a problem. Heavens there are so many unattached people in this world why would someone want to attach themselves to what sounds like emotional baggage. How about If we don't. This is playing with fire.
