  Torn asunder,
cleaved in two--
Feeling and
Thinking.

Who will win,
Heart or mind?
A tug-o-war.

Emotions,
Logic,
Opposing forces.

Balanced on a razor's edge
trying
not to fall.

Partner steady as a rock
Catches me when I fall,
Cool
Critical
A slight mistrust
And yet
I love him still
Quiet gentle love
Familiar
Safe.

Long distance lover
Charms,
Seduces,
Enchants,
Exotic and tantalizing;
Makes me laugh.
Knows me
Beneath my skin
More intimately than my partner.

I yearn to be closer;
I love him too.
I ache
to feel
his heart beating next to mine,
to hear his rapturous gasps,
to inhale the scent of his lust,
and feel his deep thrusts.

But am I
just a diversion?

I am afraid
sinking into this quagmire of indecision
in agony.

It's a turbulent flight;
Do I calmly return to my seat?
or close my eyes
and leap from the plane
without a chute
praying for soft landing
in a snowbank?
