THE PERFECT MOMENT

September 19, 2008
By Kimber Lane, Basehor, KS

On the edge,
Lost in this moment,
So perfect and sweet.

I know when I think back,
A sigh…I’ll wish I hadn’t.
But does the thought
Of what will happen after
Ever dare intrude
Into the still darkness
Of a perfect moment?
Do we listen
To the faint whisper deep inside?

I plunge into the uncertain,
I wonder, Should I?

How do you know when to fold?
To reveal the dark corners
Of a scared heart?
Just take a chance,
A chance to make
The perfect moment last.
