the power of if

 

oh   i saw a sight

today   

it made me feel so   you know   

 

achy   the near and far of it   so

close   

so impossibly far   now   in the near dark

 

wine down to dregs    mood

wistful   

i head to bed to imagine   it

 

is what i do best   if

circs

were different   if    if    if   she   but

 

she did not   no matter   i will

close my eyes   play it out   my way

Wine helps you to do that. I am always amazed at how seeing something can change our moods so quickly. Great stuff.

There can be a choice with if, as there seems to be in your final two lines, it's hindsight than can be a problem. I enjoyed the wistful feel of this piece.

The power of such a short word: if, if, if ... how many times we've all said it. If changes dreams to stark reality to that which is and not for that we wish for: "if" ... sigh ...
