Risk Draft #5

Draft #5

If she ever thought about him
and she tried not to,
for it reminded her
of the unravelling of her youth,
she supposed the attraction
had been in his daring,
his defiance of convention,
his reliance on chance
an attraction that faded
with the onset of parenthood;
and responsibility beyond self
     a bigger world
     than the ego 
     of inexperience,
understanding too late
the only risk taken
had been in choices
of her own making.
