I almost told you...

that time when I sat next to you in

the car and you asked me what my

ideal man would be.

I really did, I almost told you.

My heart threatened to beat out of

my chest at the exertion of it, 

just conjuring the right words in my brain.

Then the moment was gone,

as quickly as it had arisen.

I missed my window in that infinitely

long minute where I was trying to

remember how to breathe.

I lose more minutes now as I

imagine what may have happened if

my lips had been brave enough

And my lungs had filled with fire

instead of ash.


- maybe someday
