Cut and Paste

What would happen
if you saw my face
in front of you,
if you had no choice
but to look at me,
to face all the reasons
you don’t speak?

What would you do
if I sent you a copy
of my heart,
if I cut my words
and pasted them
onto your eyes?

Would you read,
dive into a longing
that has lasted
over a decade,
or would you run,
jump off the ledge
and fly away from these
pain-streaked pages?

I guess I’ll find out
if I ever finish writing.
