What If?

by LaVerne N. Curtis

What if I told you I loved you?
Would you believe me?
What if I told you that my heart lights up
at the mention of your name?
Would you hold that against me?
What if I revealed my inner most secrets?
Could you handle that?
My mind’s eye is filled with all these things
Plans, emotions, and lots of insecurities locked away
But what if I gave you the key?
Would you take it?
Could you take it?
The unfolding, the unmasking…...the task of it all
Peeling away the layers
Past, present and future
Giving you all I’ve got
The possibilities
Look beneath the surface 
That’s where you’ll find 
The rite of passage…..to my soul
What if?
I brought you in from the cold
Wrapped you in my infinite cocoon
While basking in my imagination
……..What if?
