Dare

It’s a declaration.
A dare.
To put your heart on the table,
As I did with mine.
And with furrowed brows I waited.
Are you stalling?
Preoccupied?
Hesitant?

And like a ticking time bomb
My heart beats
Faster
And
Faster
And s l o w e r til I give up
And waited
.
.
.
.
.
For the impeding doom.
That a good bye lies on the table
Where your heart should be
And you didn’t keep your promise,
Not for the second time
Knowing
You’re the first and only one
To get a second try.

Flash right back to now.
I count my breaths
I listen to my hearbeat.
I looked at the table.
The furrowed brows melted
Into a face touched by honesty
And faith
And trust–
Your heart lies
Next to mine,
And they’re smiling both.
We’re smiling both.
