What If You: Romantic Improv Blogging Poetic Lament

What if
your loneliness
pushed me
into a choice
I didn’t want to make yet.

What if,
as I look back on it,
I realize
I chose too soon.

What if
the crying
and goodbyeing
were caused by you thinking
in your mind
it would probably
happen eventually.

What if
I was confused
again
about what I wanted,
where I wanted to live,
how I wanted to be.

What if
you had said
nothing;
had let it play out;
had let me figure me out.

What if
you didn’t know
a few days later
that I’d look at your photos
and want to go
back
to where I was before,
before all the
what ifs
happened.

What if you
were wrong.

    Interesting, Tara.
    What if
    you read the poem
    and see
    that 90% of it
    IS me
    taking responsibility,
    accepting
    that I wasn’t ready
    to make choices,
    and that
    I maybe made the
    wrong ones,
    asking “her”
    to accept
    that I accepted
    the mistakes I’d made.
    Isn’t that
    taking responsibility?
    If that’s the case,
    where is the narcissism?
    And who are YOU
    to call me that?
