Do you ever wonder?
Do you ever look through your text message drafts,
or down at the paragraph you wrote−−
just before you deleted it and closed your phone?
Do you ever go down that road,
and wonder what could’ve happened if you sent that message,
or said what you felt?
What if you spoke every raw emotion that seeped from your thumping heart,
(those emotions that flow only when you’re lowest,
and in the darkest trenches of the night,)
to the love of your life,
or to the friend across the table?
It might be hard at first,
but once your crusty lips break through the mucus of fear,
and speak what needs to be spoken,
it will all be better.
