You see, I am older and have learned to take the time to observe and wait, instead of blindly believing based solely on what sounds sincerely sweet.
It wasn’t the gleam in your eyes that sent my heart soaring towards an elevated decadence, because I have lived long enough to understand that behind them lies the ulterior motive.
Yes, a moment can be composed of what I have yearned and longed for, what I have thirsted and been hungry for, and what my heart skips a beat for, but beyond it what is there?
When does familiarity cross over into prosperity? Is it after we have kissed for the first time, or is it a month after we have made love?
I’m not certain and that is why there is still a wall up around my heart, because I know that once it’s opened I will be vulnerable.
Are your intentions honorable?
Are you really looking for long-lasting, or are you deception in need of unmasking?
Time tells eventually, so until then I will keep my defenses up, hoping that one day I can bump you up from standby to first class.
How did I know that your words were real?
