R U...

by Stephanie

If I could...
          I would...
never...
          ever...
allow the happenings of that night
to occur without a fight.
This may sound bold
of a story untold,
but how could I say
to you that day
the thoughts circling my mind
the ones of you... so kind?
Instead I felt so much
I couldn't tell you such
I was afraid of what you would feel
after interpreting the cards that I did deal,
So instead now I sit here in pain
Thinking about the things I lost, instead of the things I did gain.
