Which way do I go...someone tell me ~
Right or left ~ which will it be?
Right is home..but God, I dont want to go~
If I go left no one will ever know...
My wife is remodeling the kitchen again~
She hasn't touched me in I don't know when.
Why should I go home where its so ice cold~
When Cheryl is willing and so warm to hold.

Right or left ~ the choice is killing me~
Horrors at home that no one can see.
Nothing at home ~ its all been said~
No life there ...Our love is dead.
Cheryl has offered me a warm body tonite~
Someone to hold...but I know its not right.
Temptation is great...and my need is strong~
I can't deny my feelings...its been so long.

A sip of cold coffee from my trembling hand~
Consumed by the needs of a drowning man.
A sweet , warm kiss sounds better to me ~
Than an ice cold hello could ever be.
Right or left ~ would it be so wrong~
To hold a loving woman all night long?
Smell her scent as I kiss her tenderly~
I've forgotten just how sweet love can be.

Which way do I go...someone tell me~
Right or left ~ Which will it be?

Take the road less traveled by... In this case I don't really know.

Go right..... and melt that ice...
let it be known that if everything remain cold
that'll have to go
where the only snow is found on the nose....
sorry bad attempt.... enjoyed this everyday dilemma!!!

Interesting treatise on the temptations of choice, Linda. Even when options are limited to two, that is when agony grates hardest against the soul.

Tough choices are the only ones worth making.
A fine entrance into a man's mind.

When you listen to your heart, do you hear loves song? Or hear silent screams all night long? Is there anticipation for a knock on your door? Or do you fear what life has in store? Do tears flow all night through? Or can I love your ring dang do?
See! (Just a joke) I can be funny honey! Thought I was being serious didn't you? Ha Ha. Listen ... don't let it rack you up. Open your eyes and see the world outside. There are others who can and will and want to love you. Receive them with open arms
(especially me). Bill

Another sad commentary to how so many think. And how sad that a marriage can reach the point where one has to look outside for love and warmth.. You have truly captured this well. Kudo's to you.
