It’s so easy to say just do it,
Just say it like you mean it
And let the pieces fall
Where they may.
But when I see you
Sitting in front of me,
All I can do is stare, in front of me
As my heartbeat escalates.
Judging our inactions isn’t the hard part,
Seeing our interactions is the hard part,
Knowing the cowards we have been
And will continue to be.
While at the surface all will be normal,
Yet beneath the surface I will be hopeful,
Hopeful one day, we will…just say it.
Maybe one day our hearts will beat in tandem,
Beat in a chorus of sweet anticipation,
And we will stare at one another
For once, in truthful silence.
Our hearts will say, Just say it.
Maybe another day, we will say.
