We Knew. It Didn't Matter.

Would this be Eden, then? We
Stroll the path between the trees
As friends at first, as we have been
For years, since we met in this
Garden. Friends, but I've a
Serpent tongue, and you've
The apple we both know we
Shouldn't eat. The tongue says,
"Taste, " and follows bite into
Your mouth. We fall and, when
We rise again, we see the
Garden's gone.

    It is such share decision to know if it is right to take a valuable friendship to a different and intimate level. There is always the chance it will not be right and once you've crossed that line you sometimes, most times I believe, can never get back that friendship in the same way. Great poem! (Report) Reply

poet William Butler Yeats

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;

Before we grow old and die.
