What If I Told You

By ~ Ben Whisman ~

  1.  
    1. What if I told you — I have something to say?
    2. What if I told you — But was too scared to say?
    3. What if I told you — I wanted to run away?
    4. What if I told you — I want to hide in bed all day?
    5. What if I told you — I was afraid you’d run away?
    6. What if I told you — What would you say?
    7. What if I told you — Would you tell me I’m wrong?
    8. What if I told you — Did you know all along?
    9. What if I told you — Would you understand?
    10. What if I told you — I don’t quite understand?
    11. What if I told you — I really need a friend?
    12. What if I told you — I don’t mean it like that?
    13. What if I told you — I want to tell you?
    14. What if I told you — But I don’t know how to start?
    15. What if I told you — I don’t know anyone else?
    16. What if I told you — There’s no one else like me?
    17. What if I told you — I feel so alone, so out of place?
    18. What if I told you — I can’t stop how I feel?
    19. What if I told you — I’ve tried to stop those feelings?
    20. What if I told you — But nothing works, I still feel that way?
    21. What if I told you — I know they won’t change?
    22. What if I told you — It’s not some kind of phase?
    23. What if I told you — Would you still care about me?
    24. What if I told you — I really need you to care?
    25. What if I told you — I just want someone to understand?
    26. What if I told you — I need some help to figure this out?
    27. What if I told you — I can’t take it all alone?
    28. What if I told you — I don’t know what I’d do?
    29. What if I told you — It hurts too much, to be so adrift?
    30. What if I told you — If you aren’t here for me, I might sink?
    31. What if I told you — If you condemn me, where will I go?
    32. What if I told you — If you turn away, who will be there?
    33. What if I told you — What will I do?
    34. What if I told you — I want to trust you, but I don’t know how?
    35. What if I told you — This is way too big for me?
    36. What if I told you — I’m trying to guess what you think?
    37. What if I told you — I can’t tell what you think?
    38. What if I told you — Though I’ve known you forever, almost?
    39. What if I told you — I can’t read it in your voice, in your face?
  2.  
    1. What if I — No, please don’t go!
    2. I almost said it.
    3. I almost got the courage.
    4. I almost got the words out.
    5. But you were busy.
    6. And I was nervous.
    7. But you were tired.
    8. And I was sleepless.
    9. But you had something to say.
    10. And I couldn’t say anything.
    11. But you were elsewhere.
    12. And I was right here.
    13. Alone with my thoughts.
    14. Sitting right next to you.
    15. So I didn’t say it, again.
    16. Will I ever say it?
    17. Will you ever hear it?
  3.  
    1. I AM GAY!
    2. There, I said it! I didn’t think I could.
    3. I am still scared.
