Unanswered Questions

I know my love gets you high
But can I string you along?
With nothing but my sweet song?
Oh, where does your heart belong?

I’m aware that I can please
Will the magic go away?
In the hum drum of each day?
When I can’t find words to say?

I’m aware I can entice
But will beauty soon wear off?
Seductive charm not enough?
Neglected when life gets tough?

I’m aware that I can sooth
But will comfort satisfy?
When life asks the question, “Why?”
Will your heart my love deny?

I know that I can be sweet
Do other flavors entice?
Will you crave a hotter spice?
Just want "naughty" and not "nice"?

I know that I satisfy
But why must you overeat?
Need another type of sweet
Not satisfied with ONE treat?

I know I can liberate
Will she your heart ensnare?
Will her passion take you “there”?
While body and soul you bare?

I’m aware that I can please
But will her bright eyes beguile?
Mesmerized by her coy smile
Will you ignore me a while?

I know your heart likes to play
Will my heart faithful remain?
What is there for me to gain?
Except…a heartful of pain?

I wonder, will you regret?
The risk you took in this game?
Does my body hold your claim?
Will my heart treat you the same?

    Terrific piece. So many questions, so few answers. Love will have its challenges, but it should never be so complex. And, that last question, it really should be rephrased: "Will YOUR heart treat ME the same?" Time for the heart to push back already...

    If a man has wandering eye, is he worthy of the questions?

    Asking questions is a sign of genius! Didn't you know that, Mr Seal...The best of the best....Socrates...used the dialectic method to impart knowledge. Jesus answered questions with questions....(Jesus being the ABSOLUTE BEST). So, yes....I'm in great company here....Ponder the questions, my dear...It will lead you to wisdom....

    So many questions coming from the depth of an honest heart so it seems..Sometimes some questipns are better left unansweted..especially when someone loves to play a game..I guess regret will follow when someone is playing.Love definitely should be two sided so there won t be regrets.Very emotional..Mamy times i feel im wearing the same shoe in this poem..but instead of asking questions i shut doors.You re a very sweet lady deserving d best.Hope its fictional

    Oh sweet sweet Charmain.....Lovely post....Lovely words...Lovely heart! Yes, some questions are just rhetorical questions. Shutting doors is a good idea....but sometimes shut doors make for lonely hearts as well. The poem gets us to think, right? That's the point....HUGS!
