My only excuse...
Is that I was blind to my heart's conspiracy,
I never considered its cruel disregard for "what has been"
Never guessed its pursuit of "what could be".
I wish my culpability could be denied.
I wish blame could be relegated
I wish I was unaware that absolution of self will never be granted.
My life as I knew it has been shattered
I accept all blame as my eyes are wide open
I leapt into the abyss with intent
My hearts disregard of "what has been" complete,
It manipulated my surrender to "what could be".
My motto has become "C'est la vie!!
The pain that will result
Is merely a question of time and circumstance
But know, the blame lies with my heart
It was unable to relinquish you
Its addicition overwhelmed my guilt.
My heart's decision left me defenseless
In truth, I offered only minimal resistance
You and my heart led to an introspection of self.
You invaded my soul and left me breathless
You made me use words
You are the fulfillment of all my heart knew possible
And that which I never believed could be true .
I never thought to be handled with such care
You breached my defenses
And tasted my marshmallow center.
My heart, it seems, picked well.
Thus, my heart is entrusted to you alone.
