What Ifs

What if we
don’t last?
What if this yearning
for more turns
into a lie?
Could I handle
the fallout of
losing my
best friend?

  1. Oh… now that’s a tragic question to pose. A friend distanced by land or commitments but will that yearning be just that. Will spending time together be as good as you thought it would be. would you drift because the yearning is so intense that the meeting pales in comparison.
    I would hate that. I don’t think I could live and love properly if this were to come to pass.
    Beautifully crafted question but heartbreaking concept.

  2. I love how you broke the lines in this one. Especially:
    “What if this yearning
    for more turns
    into a lie?”

    I like how “for more turns” almost gives it a different meaning. Like it’s a yearning for more turns to try again and again. 😀 Maybe it’s just me.

    1. Yeah, I did that on purpose. It allows for more interpretation if people notice it. Kind of like Bokeh. I initially had the period at the end of the first line as a typo, but I actually liked the way it broke up the thought. 😊
