I took a risk, a leap of faith
What I said I wouldn’t, I did
I didn’t listen to my brain
Instead let my heart advise me

Your beauty was too enticing
I couldn’t help the feelings felt
For they flooded my emotions
Faster than a flash flood in July

I judged your book by its cover
And you did the same with my book
Thinking the picture showed it all
All 1000 words like they say

But after I opened it up
I was dismayed with what I read
Yet I kept turning the pages
With hopes that it would get better

Only to end up closing it
And flipping it to the back cover
To read what the summary read
Hoping to get an idea…

Of what could have been.
