Full moon

I might have done it

Because you wanted to
because you asked

I could have done it
if I shut my eyes

thought of how it was
before we started this.

We might have made it
in the future conditional
of parallel lives,

where we sail forever
under the green flash
of Caribbean skies

We could still do it,
& I did try

but first I pushed
you to the limit,

didn’t see why
you shouldn’t pay the price

for your indecision
your little white lies

that made it all seem alright
(in your head) .

I asked for all or nothing
(which really wasn’t wise)

when I began to understand
that no love lies in shadows

under these sup eternal skies
with the full moon blinding us.
