Could Have Been

What could have been, if
you hadn’t seen it, and
I didn’t need
to leave early, and
we had sat, in
the dark, that night
sparks igniting then, not
a month later, and we
would have been
together and then
ripped apart
by the following weeks?
What would have been?
A short-term heartbreak?
Another tangled mess
of pain and
overlapping ties?
Thank God for the break,
for the bad timing.
So we talked
for hours instead
and ended with
just enough
and not too much
love, before we
were ready
for us.
