i almost do

i want you in or out


there will be no grey area this time


it is black or white

heartbreak or heart light


i almost ask you why

why you’re back after all this time


the message is written

all i have to do is click send


i think of that girl who stood before you on that strange, empty night

who waited for you to explain

to say something, anything


you walked away from her

you walked away from me


and i vowed to be done with you


i type out the words that i have spelled a thousand times


do i send it?


will i finally get answers after all this time?

will the closure that i so desperately need, the closure that she deserves, be within my grasp?




well, i almost do
