Everything’s been said
But nothing heard
Strangers to More
And now the lines are blurred.
More, they want
It’s magic, they hope.
But – they’ll be okay otherwise.
None of them is the one to mope.
And sense before magic, yes?
Even if both want more.
It’s not like a big deal, you know?
They’ve been here (separately) before.
They’ve been here before
They’ve seen every shade
But risking it all for nothing at all?
Well, it’s tough to remain unafraid.
Smiles are warm, and
Hearts – warming up.
Mind’s on alert though.
What if this ‘game’ is tough?
Battle is raging on now
Smiles are intact
Who will take the leap?
Who will drop the act?
This is too good to be true
Both tell themselves with a knack.
They weigh the odd and evens
Two minds, one track.
Jaded by experiences
Battling the cure and the lure.
Prisoners of their fears,
Hopeful, and so, so unsure
Both know this could be Something,
But the fear of What-If lurks
Sparks and magic is for fools they decide,
After all, hope hardly works.
They feel the hope building, but
What about it’s powerful evil twin?
Oh what the hell!
They’ll let the Fear win.
Fear is powerful, yes.
Much easier to give-in.
Than to step up and take a chance
And feel something from within.
It’s easier to step back and say
‘Strangers! And lets keep it that way!’
Because taking a chance is silly –
To leave, is easier than to stay
Let’s leave and not risk it
Let’s go and not invest.
Who wants potential heartache, huh?
Obviously walking away is the best
Is it worth the risk, they ponder.
Hell no, says the Brain
And just like that fear wins
And they are strangers again.
