    Standing Under Fire

    To know and not yet to act is not yet
    to know. To understand the consequence
    of placing money on a specious bet
    is pointless till enduring the expense.
    I always knew I loved the girl next door,
    until her absence, which I’d formerly not miss,
    made me react with passionate rapport.
    I thought I knew the pleasure of your kiss.
    But never, till our lips configured one,
    did I respond with shivers down my spine,
    until the intimate exchange was done.
    I never really thought of yours and mine,
    until the ties that bound us both were lost,
    and I was left to brook the heavy cost.
