A Moment of Flaming Endulgence

I am a man in love withe a woman I cannot have.

We live in the same town and are both single.

There are no “others.”

It’s complicated.

I saw her on Pacific Avenue…radiant like the sun

And I said “hi”

After Seven months of silence

So utterly beautiful.

Bono got it right:

See the stone

Set in your eyes
See the thorn
Twist in your side
I wait for you

Sleight of hand
And twist of fate
On a bed of nails
She makes me wait
And I wait without you

I can’t live with or without you
I can’t live with or without you

Through the storm
We reach the shore
You give it all
But I want more
And I’m waiting for you

I can’t live with or without you
I can’t live with or without you
I can’t live…
I can’t live with or without you

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give…
And you give…
And you give yourself away

My hands are tied
My body bruised
She’s got me with
Nothing to win and
Nothing left to lose

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give…
And you give…
And you give yourself away

I can’t live with or without you
I can’t live with or without you
I can’t live…
I can’t live with or without you

**********

There is nothing more to be said. I’m done. I know it. She knows it. Neither of us will ever recover. We went too deep.
