Next time, for sure

I couldn’t do it

I couldn’t leave her

Not when my feet were sore from waiting

Not when my eyes were burning from being shown disappointment

And not even when my lungs flattened from the pressure of a question asked and an answer expected

I’m just not strong enough to

Stand up for me

And not lay down for her
