....Leaving....Sex....Where It Lay

Youth's cluttered pathway
...Often....distorted...its view
There's wisdom in aging...
Youth never once had a clue

....Pondering...those days
Simply wondering aloud
....Complex....its mystery
A ground yet unplowed

...Clarity non-existent
Nothing abundantly clear
.....Sex...the ultimate...uniter
Perhaps...the opposite...it appears

When lying naked with each other
...None more sacred of schemes
Yet in reality...'tis but....a moment
....All meaningless.....it seems

Had they chose merely friendship
.....Leaving sex......where it lay
That bond once so magnificent
Would be there...to this day

.....Think.....for a moment
The truth of those words....
Passionate romps in the hay
....Time...sees now....as absurd

For that bond once magnificent
....Would be....their salvation...today
Had they chose simply friendship
....Leaving....sex....where it lay

Humanity's...critical mistake.
