missed opportunities

missed opportunities

 

i have all the answers if you ask the right questions

but i’ve spent my entire life asking all the wrong ones

 

like why

 

like why do i never know what to say to a girl until after she walks away

 

i’ve never been one to work on the spot

or improvise

 

i’m always at a loss for words in the moment

 

i ponder

sometimes for too long

 

i may be quiet

but on the inside

the gears churning

like a room full of grandfather clocks

 

they chime all at once when i come to a realization

 

you’ll never see me shake

but i’ve got all the oceans rumbling through my veins

trying to get enough oxygen to this brain of mine so i can properly piece this puzzle of a sentence together to say to you

 

(this is what i have so far)

hey

 

 

 

 

you’re cute

(NAILED IT)

 

had i only thought of that thirty seconds ago

i’d be on a completely different path in my life right now

talking to you

 

but instead

i’m beating myself up for not thinking of it sooner

 

why

 

why                 why                             why

 

why                 why                             why

 

WHY

 

but that’s not the right question to ask

 

it’s a wasted energy

 

i do have all the answers

but i just need to find the right questions to ask myself

 

someday

i’ll get it right
