If I could turn back time, would I change things?

Would I fix the broken picture frame upon the floor

And place it back, upon the mantel?

Would I keep my eyes closed?

In blissful ignorance,

It's the second glance,

That carves it into memories.

.

If they could turn back time, would they change things?

Would they whisper?

So I wouldn't hear their screams,

Would they wait until I was safe?

.

If he could turn back time, would he change things?

Would he still walk away,

In violence and guilt?

Would I follow?

And cut the soles of my feet on the rocky terrain.

Would I watch him drive away?

Would I cry?

If I could turn back time, would it make a difference?
