Now or Never

No holding back
Now or never
What’s worse
Saying something
And wishing you hadn’t
Or saying nothing
Wishing you had

I stand frozen
Closing my eyes
Sigh
Open my eyes
You’re standing there
The words tumble out
No stopping now

The look on your face
It kills me
I turn to run
Your hands around my wrist
Holding me back
“It’s not your fault”
I start to cry

You hug me tight
Don’t let me go
I silently beg
It’s happened
Too many times
Picking me up
You start walking

I don’t ask
I don’t care
Anywhere is better
Nothing will be the same
