Laughter by myself and another as we reach the stock room
We're laughing at something I had said about Tim
I turn my back to look around the Icy room
"lol look there, we've got enough mice don't we?"
Turning around, I find two emerald eyes staring longingly upon me
Before I had the chance to reason or even say one word
Her lips touched mine as she sought to taste my soul
I could taste hers.. I could feel the lust in her heart
It was a poison spreading.. Awakening the deepest guilt in me
Finally the embrace was severed.. I had the chance to speak
"Candice.... Nick loves you very much... This is wrong..."
With a small smile that rose like the first undead.. she spoke
"Nick doesn't have to know..."
Again her lips sought mine.. and again I knew I would taste acid
Screams were echoing in my head to stop this..
So I did what I thought right..
I severed the link before I was poisoned utterly by her..
"Candice.. I don't love you.. I couldn't.. Nick is a good friend to me.."
"This is just wrong.. I'm sorry, I won't do this"
And so I left, I would leave again if given the chance..
Though I wish now it was done better
I said what I thought should be said
I did only what I knew to do
Though I could never be perfect
I pray I did something right..
The guilt still remains...
