Fools Rush In Where Angels Fear To Tread

He was a bad boy

The kind Mom warned me about

He was from a different world than me

But he was so inviting

His devilish grin

His pouty eyes

And that body of his

He had done time

He used drugs

Things that used to scare me

But he had no fear

I took the plunge

Dived in with eyes closed

Enticed by the taste of desire

And curious about the other side of the street

I may be a fool

But for once I am living

Life on the edge for a while
