    What if I told you

    what if i told you
    it has taken 5 months to know myself

    what if i told you
    i’ve been an idiot
    all along

    what if i told you
    today,
    everything i hadn’t, yet

    what if i told you
    how tired i am
    to lose love
    and find myself
    through all those
    eyes
    i can’t look into
    anymore

    what if i told you
    i had that space all night, for you to wake up at 5AM

    what if i told you
    i saw us
    globetrotting
    until after
    your teeth
    and my hair
    was done

    what if i told you
    I’ll get to a place where
    i won’t have to say
    ‘what if i told you’
    ever again

    and now
    no matter how long
    it takes
    to believe again
    what if i told you
    i won't be right here
