The agony of deciding

I walk to your door not a chance to even knock, 

You meet me there, with your big grin. 

We share a stare for it's no big shock, 

We both realize that we're here to sin. 

We go inside, don't start right away, 

Just sit there in silence staring at a movie box. 

Attention up front we don't know what to say, 

Time goes so slow as we both check the clocks. 

Finally it happens and we both move in, 

Further and further 'till I can't take anymore. 

I don't think I can handle the original sin, 

I hope you aren't mad, upset, or sore. 

I have to leave there's a chance to escape, 

I feel so bad that I can't look at your eyes. 

The surface of this we have not begun to scrape, 

It goes on forever, right up to the skies. 

I'm all torn up inside, 

From the other day. 

I know I'm trying to hide, 

From what I have to say. 

You know that I love you, 

I'd never lead you on. 

But I don't know what to do, 

For it felt all wrong. 

If I had another chance I'd probably choose same, 

Cause you hurt me more than a mere mortal should. 

I realize I'm rambling and that it sounds lame, 

But as you can see I did the best that I could. 

All I can say is it didn't feel right, 

The reasons dumbfound me. 

And I don't want to fight, 

For the future is one we cannot see. 

I feel all alone in this earthly black hole, 

With no one around me to soften the load. 

I wish I could find my very own soul 

It has it's own language and I can't break the code. 

I can't believe I am faced with this decision, 

In different ways you have been flawed.
