This

I'm choking on the silence,

The air between us is heavy,

I'm feeling from a distance…

I have to say this now!

Awkward is my presence,

Doubting is my mind,

Unsettled is my stomach…

I have to say this now!

There's nothing worse,

Than leaving the words,

Unspoken,

The words you know,

You should say…

I'd like nothing more,

Than to say this now.

Then, sense prevails,

I fight the urge,

To scream out,

What I feel…

If only I had said it then,

Because now,

I never will.
