One Heart Missing

Tags: lust, love, choices

Choosing lust and finding love

There isn’t a place I haven’t been,
Or a place I wouldn’t go.
There isn’t a path I’ve never taken,
I chased my dreams both high and low.

I thought I knew each journey chosen,
Each fantasy I sought to explore.
Lines were crossed so many times,
Rules were broken and signs ignored.

I lived and loved each moment chosen,
Not thinking about the pain or cost.
The plans and schemes I put in place,
Didn’t account for my future lost.

Lives were changed by my meddling ways,
I didn’t care if they were pure or mated.
All that mattered was my desires were met,
And all of my urges were endlessly sated.

Wisdom comes at a place and time,
When the heart and mind are ready.
Not an epiphany or a lightning bolt,
The changes come slow and steady.

Now I think of my foolish life,
And often think ‘What if I had only…’.
So many chances just thrown away,
Now in a crowd I still feel lonely.

The life I lived I don’t regret,
Even with meaningless lust and kissing.
I chose my desires and discovered love,
And finally found the one heart missing.
