Back in Time

I have wasted so much time

dwelling on the past

that the future arrive way too fast.

Thinking about what might have been

made me ignore

the warning signs I should have seen.

Now I am no longer sure what

it is I am feeling,

whether or not I should disclose

these secrets I have been concealing.

Maybe it would be best

to keep them to myself

so they don’t end up

hurting anybody else.

I have lived with them for this long,

why risk what time

I have left by saying something wrong.

I pour myself another glass

to ease my mind

then I will drift back in time

to see what else I can find.
