We’re dancing around
The things we’ve unsaid
Is it all in my heart?
Is it all in my head?
That part of me feels dead — like a lifeless branch that’s fractured and red
Or a dried-up twig that’s been snapped in half
How do I move forward from here?
How do I shake off this lingering fear?
When I can’t go back
And I can’t draw near
This isn’t the way it was supposed to be
I had a duty, and I failed spectacularly
Because I was dumb
And ever naive
I was fearful and anxious
And confused, utterly
Over all of those things
The secrets unkept
The things our hearts whispered
And the things we’ve unsaid
