so are you still carrying those scars
around, to guard you from new trouble?
you still bring that pain out when
I suggest trading hearts for clubs?
do you still try always not to do
that same thing?
whichever or whoever it was that you mourn
you know temptation never hides
it only wears less fashionable clothes,
voice, or some other cheap disguise
what is that fear you are wielding
that you refuse to leave with me?
did you have other plans, was there
somewhere else, you were supposed to be?
and are you still carrying those scars
to remind yourself?
temptation never walks away, it
just puts on another face
and will your scars remind you
of how that excitement tastes?
