Comments about Cliff Barker
Who reasons why he acted so foolishly?
Left never to know where it may have led.
The fire of love was all consuming inside,
But the future lay opaque, unsure, and unknowing.
What would they have become over time?
A couple, together embraced for the ages,
Or a couple, forever bitterly estranged.
Too soon apart, they were never to realize their fate.
When they last entwined in passion
Bittersweet softness with heartfelt kisses.
Nervous and afraid, yet he knew not at all,
A siren's song was calling him to an abyss.
Where were they to pass ...
