... the other woman ...

Posted by Purple Streak at 1:01 PM

I have become the other woman ...

Whose arms you can only sneak to when the sun has set ...

When no one can see ...

The one you can only spend stolen time - sharing stolen kisses with.


I sincerely wish ours was a different story ...

But I can't turn back time.

With every moment I spend with you ...

For every half hearted and rushed 'I've Missed You' hug I get ...

And for every time you give me a hurried goodnight kiss ...

I foolishly let a piece of my heart go ... to waste.


I don't want to spoil what you already have ...

For what could have been ...

I'm only as strong as you will allow me to be ...

If you will let me go.


You say you pray for me to find mine ...

But, how can I??!

When I'm too busy satisfying my thirst ...

At a well I have no right to?

If you were single (and free),

I wouldn't have given this a second thought ...

I woulda jumped right in!


You have changed me so much,

I can't even remember what the old me felt like.

Before I spin outta control, help me ...

With a reality check.

Let's return to life as we knew it ...

Before we met.
