it's there

it’s there
the little blinking light tells me it’s there
as i stand and stare
i wonder why my hand won’t reach out
and press the button
it’s not as if i don’t want to hear
i do
it’s just i’m not sure what i will hear
or what i want to hear
what if it’s long and accusatory?
what if it’s everything i’ve hidden from
all these years?
or worse yet
what if it’s short and perfunctory
as if it means nothing to him
as if i mean nothing anymore?
i know i hurt him all those years ago
it’s nervewracking
this trying to make amends
my heart is galloping in my chest
pulling around all the nerves in my head
now i wonder why i ever embarked upon this journey
it would have been so much easier
to stay here alone and ignorant instead
but i have set this in motion
just like i did back then
and now i have to face
whatever it is he has said…….

it's there
