Whoever you are,
If words could make you see that I’m not as scared as I once was, I’d memorize a script for you. I'd perfect it. I’d even smile more often in your direction, relinquishing any misconceptions about my feelings you may hold.
You know, for reassurance.
But right now I’m gonna zip my hoodie up neck-high and hold my tongue.
(Forgive me for my cliches, but I can't say it myself.)
So as they say, this road’s just all too familiar, and I’ve chased that rabbit before.
Yet, if you come out and say it, I’ll probably completely agree.
