Suppose I stayed with this guy?
Maybe I would have a nice house and a fancy car
I wouldn’t have to work
I wouldn’t have to stress about unnecessary habits
Suppose we didn’t break up?
I would be graduating by now
We would have been living together
It would have been six year in November
I don’t regret him
I don’t regret leaving
Suppose I never met him?
Would he have been my Prince Charming; would I have still been his princess?
There wouldn’t be heartbreak
Suppose I wasn’t stressed?
There wouldn’t be any more pain
Suppose I never got the chance to smell the Caribbean blends?
The chicken foot soup
The curry goat
The rice and peas
Suppose I never got the chance to hate someone the way I hated you?
If I hadn’t banged my hands on the dash board
Broke a few necklaces
Kicked my feet against the car window
Suppose I never got the chance to meet you?
Your short dreads at the time
That jumpy pep in your step
Suppose I never got the chance to love you?
Gave you hugs in bed at night
Shared my headache
Showed you the true me
For you to give me a great beginning to a wonderful ending.
Suppose I had grey hair?
My eyes low
Suppose I had only four fingers?
If the bursts of smoke flies from my mouth aren’t stressful enough
Suppose I didn’t have three children?
The sun filled joyous summers
Red, blue, purple, pinks all surrounding on my kitchen table
The fast breeze of the trees, flying past the windows
Suppose I never met you?
Where would life have taken me?
Your soft touch when you hug me
Your soft kiss
Your sweet lips.
