If I Could



If I could I would gladly heal your pain

I would lay your head on my shoulder

And I would love you more than I love myself


If I could I would paint the sky blue for you
I would write a sonnet with only you in mind

And I would scream my love from the rooftop


If I could I would have told you I was gay

I would act like an adult and admit my mistake

And I would take back the way you found out


If I could I would never return to Nola’s

I would tell everyone that you broke my heart

And I would lie to you and say I was sorry


If I could I would never have fucked you…twice

I would take that night back

And I would make it so you would forget me


If only I could, Jessica, but we both know I can’t




I enjoy reading comments from my readers,

so if you've enjoyed reading my writing,

write a little something for me.
