and not separate tonight.
We could surprise the world with our thoughtful
quips and homely passages.
We could convince those who doubt our purity
of a cleansing route of rights.
Or we could turn around and walk away.
You could apologize for moody tendencies
and maybe cry a little.
You could peer deep into my child-like eyes
and find a bit of wisdom.
You could cease to search for answers in a failed,
Or you could turn around and walk away.
I could deny all disagreements and submit myself
to your every need.
I could subsidize every payment I have made
and hand you the full amount.
I could desensitize my uncanny sense of insecurity
and develop a new perception.
Or I could turn around and walk away.
We could unmix our hands and return our toothbrushes
to their original cups.
We could settle for a quick fix and simple solution
and live with a fear of simplicity.
We could sanctify a compromise, but secretly
wish we'd listened.
Or we could maybe stay.
