If I Weren't Afraid

By Ella Bowler


This time, I’ll say yes.

I’ll fall back into your arms,

crawl beneath the bedsheets,

they’ll still be warm.

This time, I’ll say yes.

I’ll sip the coffee again,

watch our films again,

won’t be afraid of music anymore.

This time, I’ll say yes.

I’ll stop the silence,

talk for hours,

say I love you without it being such a chore.

This time, I’ll say yes.

I’ll walk back into the room,

return my hand into yours

& grip it tightly, as if it had never left.

This time, I’ll say yes.
