Cardiotrap

byRhymeSmith©

I saw my lover yesterday,
My heart began to race.
She felt it too, I have to say,
I saw it in her face.

I was transported to the past,
When first in love we fell -
It happened to us hard and fast,
Just how, we couldn't tell

Our feelings had us terrified,
And guilt pushed us apart.
But passion would not be denied,
It's flame burns in the heart.

And so, almost against our will,
In love our bodies joined,
To seek that sweet and painful thrill,
In moments we purloined.

Our times together, I confess,
Were always much too rare -
Too little time for tenderness
Or showing how we care.

But oh! What pleasure we did find
In sweet, conjugal bliss!
Discovering treasure, of a kind
In each and every kiss!

Our joy was near corporeal,
When first our lifelines merged...
The sadness, near unbearable,
When they again diverged.

The pain of living separately
We came to tolerate,
Expecting that, eventually
The heartache would abate.

We felt that time and distance would
Attenuate our pain -
It was a shock, that one glance could
Bring it all back again.

So long it was, could passion live?
We thought our hearts were jaded,
But we still have so much to give,
Our love has never faded.

The feelings that we tried to hide
Burst out, and filled the room,
And passion that we thought had died
Exploded into bloom.

A moment I had, nothing more,
To touch the face I miss,
And then I turned, walked out the door.
Remembering her kiss.
