If She Would Have Told Me


If She Would Have Told Me

If you would have told me
That you loved me
With that half smirk
Betraying the truth of
Four separate nights
Two of talk
One of play
And one
Of course
Of us

Endless telephone conversations
Innocent beginnings…


A bus stop encounter
Finding common ground
Work, hometown, lifestyle

The almost year long absence
Then, like purple out of the blue
Just checking to see…

Young still
Though senior to me
Asking to meet

You who came in the night
Attractive, shaped like thunder
And oh so married you…

Then I would have closed my eyes
Inhaled you, mana turned vapor
Embraced you as long lost bond
Found again when the hope was gone

If you would have told me
