If I Could

If I could…I would tell you.

I would tell you how hard it is for me to watch you drown.

I would tell you how hard it is for me to keep my distance.

I would tell you how hard it is for me to know this might not be it.

If I could…I would show you.

I would show you how to break those bonds.

I would show you how to commit for real.

I would show you how to give in.

If I could…I would yell at you.

I would yell “DANGER!” as you open that bottle.

I would yell “LIAR!” as you spin another web.

I would yell “PLEASE!” as you turn away.

If I could…I would hold you.

I would hold you as the nightmares rage.

I would hold you as your body fights.

I would hold you as your soul caves.

If I could…I would whisper in your ear.

I would whisper words of love.

I would whisper words of encouragement.

I would whisper words of hope.

And if you could…I know…you would listen.
