this is not a performance

who can tell when 
this opportunity will arrive again 
and no, 
it never feels as if 
i did enough 
i could not have laughed and loved any harder/

not for anybody other than you/

this is not a performance/

i still torture myself hourly with doubts/ 

if i ask 
you say 
i don’t know.
