Dare I Say... - Poem by Christopher Taber

Dare I say I like her?
I think this was how I used to feel
But it’s been so long.
Was this what it felt like?
I don’t know I might get hurt
All over again.
I can’t be depressed like that again
I won’t be depressed like that again.
I couldn’t handle being depressed like that again.
I don’t want to want to die again.
I wish innocence could be reclaimed
And broken hearts patched and mended
Cause you deserve it all and better
But I still don’t know if I’m ready
I don’t know if I want to like you.
I might want to die again.
That’s what it comes down to.
