When Chance Holds Such Allure


As dusk falls
desire lingers, seeking
the glow of the setting sun
to illuminate our path
You check your steps
wary of crossing
into the dark

But the stars have
aligned for us this night
Look, the bashful moon
shrouds its captivating face
in gossamer clouds
The dark casts
its velvet cloak over us

So let the last vestiges
of resistance melt away
Let’s surrender
to passion’s lure
Why hesitate for
even a moment
when chance holds
such allure
