Yes no maybe

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 might 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 realise

that no love lies in shadows


under these sup eternal skies

with the moon blinding us.
