Poem: "I could have written a poem tonight"

I could have written a poem tonight
But chose not to
I could have chosen to share my heart
But this "organ of fire" may set forests ablaze and burn bridges
And I cannot have that

I would have written a song tonight
But decided against it
I would have sung it to you during one of my lonely nights
But I know that you would have laughed 
And I cannot bear that

I should have just finished my mundane task tonight
But I figured to let my heart speak 
I should someday make this right
But as of tonight, I quieted the could have, would have, and should have
Someday, I will do this right
Because if I don't, then I cannot live with that.


Poem written by me!
