‘Here there be troubles’ the sign flashed only in my head,
I knew better but pressed on instead,
Chasing her while she was in love with him,
What I wish I had known is how that would end,

But, ten years later I can now look back and see,

Experience had a steep and painful price for me,

With age comes less desire to seek the road less travelled,
The one with the jagged glass hidden low by the grass,
In my youth I thought ‘what’s that sparkling down there?’
And off I would dare go knowing full well,

It wasn’t rich like diamonds or safe like dew,
So what, then, was the draw if I truly knew,
That only trouble would come from my curiosity?
Was it just lust or love from her I hoped to see?
Time and distance tries to make me think it was the former,
But at the time I would have sworn ‘twas loves current flowing,
Nonetheless, I proceeded full well knowing,
Down what darkened road I was going,
And that no good could come of this…
Then again there was her kiss,
And maybe a memory of that alone,
Is all the good there is now and nothing more,
Thursday Morning, when both time and I stood still,
At her front door I held her close in the misting cool,
And kissed her again and again and again,
Just a memory of a kiss we shared,
On her doorstep at the end of fall,
There was a diamond sparkling in that grass after all.
