3rd And 2

What should one do?
When left is a clue...
A 3rd disappointment awaits to cling?

What should one do?
When a recovery has been made,
After healing from 2 splits and divorce.
And a temptation presented by someone new,
With their eyes fixed on the closeness of a goal...
Seen before from another time explored.

Quick one remembers the exchanging of I do's.
And twice this has devastated.
To go through with a remorseful act,
Leaving no one elated about that.

And to be baited for a third attempt to try?
One should not contemplate this...
When it is easier to dry those tears that fall,
Temporarily cried from weeping eyes.

What should one do?
When left is a clue...
A 3rd disappointment awaits to cling?
I would say today,
Milk that cow without delay.
And cap it with a hat,
To ensure nothing strays.

And at a certain age,
Listening to someone moan 'daddy'...
Is better to hear momentarily in the ears,
Than it is for a lifetime from a pocket to pay.

'So...
Marriage for us is out of the question? '

Let's agree to 'this' about 'that'...
Not only is it not a game I wish to ever play again!
But far it is from the park,
In which I wish to recover from the tossing...
Of my uncovered balls.

'It's difficult for you to handle your sentiments gently,
Isn't it? '

That depends on the condition of the field at play.
I don't like it too wet or too dry...
Before I arrive to heat it up.

'To score and then to leave? '

Exactly!
