I’m Afraid I May


I feel like the best words are the ones I don't say.
Too afraid to ask,
I'm afraid I may.

In fleeting glances,
You gave me several chances.
I shouldn't have walked away.

Tonight,
If I gave you my hand,
And didn't say a word,
Would you still take it?
If you did,
From the silence,
I know I'd stray.

These hands are as much yours as they are mine.
For a dance,
A stroll,
A quick squeeze before the next chance.
Once upon a time,
In these palms,
yours did lay.

I wish I could show you all that I see,
In all the nothing I say.

What if our eyes meet again?

Too afraid to ask,
I'm afraid I may.
