Sweet Surrender

lulled by the hum of contentment.
from a false sense of security comes danger.
i didn't realize i had let my guard down.
so much was wrong without my knowledge.
if only we hadn't let silence and fear control us.

sometimes i feel my statute of limitations wearing thin.
the thought of being with another man
tauntingly parades through my mind...
it makes me sick.
just when i think i can't take any more of his games,
i start to believe it's too soon to surrender.

he is like an amputated limb:
he may be gone, but i can still feel the itch.
