A Chance Meeting

A Chance Meeting

A mischievous smile
And daring eyes
We met in the prime
Of our intricate lives

A gentle, touching caress
Inflamed our needs and desires
A complex, intrepid dance
Our hearts devised

Both afraid to surrender our hearts
Tripping on our past endeavors
We dared to love without restraint
Only to be caught in our own constraints

And so, we parted that night
With a hollow promise of future delight
Both living our lives apart
As we have, lonely, from the start

Regretting nothing for taking a chance
Our lives & souls truly enhanced.
