Another Heartache

I’m over my head and up to my knees
In the emotions pulsing through my veins,
Deep in the thoughts swirling
Round and round in my head.

So what can I do
But jot down a poem here and now?
What can I do but hold on
A little longer, for a little more,
Somehow?

You could leave again…
And you could stay.
But I’m not sure I can stop
These words from pouring out
Today.

I’ve held back the letters
I couldn’t, I wouldn’t, I wasn’t ready
To write before.

But if you give your all,
I can’t help but give in
This time—

Maybe we’ll both get hurt.
Maybe others will say it’s another heartache.
But if you can try, then so can I.
