Tobago Cays

Yes, no, yes.

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

when I began to realise

that no love lies in shadows

under these sup eternal skies

with the moon blinding us.
