“Maybe” Poem


By Ashley O’Hare

Every now and then

I think about what could have been.

Could we have been sitting side by side at the movies
and arguing over diaper duty?

If I had dropped my boundaries a little more,

could that life have been hiding behind that closed door?

Maybe if those evil words said in jest

hadn’t put our relationship to the test.

Maybe if you hadn’t been involved with her

I could have remained oblivious to the curse.

Maybe if I could have held on a while longer,

we could be living a life approved by the others.
