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.
