Just when we were at the crossroads
passion called out,
“Come, let us be partners in crime.
Whatever will be, will be.”
“Wait, you are not free. You cannot leave.
It is not just about being yourself.”
“Come on, let us follow the stardust under the stars.
Be my soulmate.” whispered passion.
“Don’t please don’t give up on me.
Let it pass away. Letting go is one of the
bravest things you can do.” pleaded reason.
“Living with me will be a dream come true.”
insisted irresistible passion.
“Don’t play with the fire. Don’t listen to him.
A flame like that may burn your loved ones.”
That did the trick.
Let passion melt into reason.
