Torn Between Two Lovers


There in that bowling alley,

you both fought over me.


I tried to give you each equal attention

but I wanted to stare at you only.


The one I wanted most

passed me to the other one

knowing he didn't want me as much.


Isn't that always the story of my life?


And when I couldn't 

bring myself to love him,

you reappeared in my life.


Was it coincidence

or were you both keeping tabs on me?


But by then,

my mind had sobered

and my lust for you had passed.


So you missed your chance

and maybe that was good for me

in the long run.
