Be open; but its hard,
'Cause you've been hurt.
You promised yourself
You'd never let the
Wrong person in again;
Never show your
Vulnerability like that again.


But time passes, and
You fall into a pattern;
The weight of loneliness
Builds imperceptibly.

Then a chance meeting;
Eye contact held a little too long,
Easy smiles, clumsy words;
And suddenly you're
Ready to take a chance.

Hopefully a chance for a change in pattern. Nice to shuffle things up a bit.
