Pass

person-768472_960_720

You took a pass
on my heart.

So often
as I dial your number
that thought crosses
my mind

And I ask myself
how I can place blinders
over my own eyes
and ignore that
small detail

I reached out for your hand
you withdrew
and now you ask why
I’m not reaching
for you

I so often
feel like a failure
in the sport
of overcoming
and acknowledging

I dial your number
taking a pass
on feeling anything
at all
