If You Don’t (Day 734)

How can I walk on this ice 

   without slipping?

How can I look the other way? 

Navigate this overgrown path

  without tripping?

Feel my heart break every day? 

Beloved liars, bullies, friends— 

  because I’ll love you if you don’t,

and when we reach our separate ends,

  I may still love you if you do.
