twice

seems twice was two long
to think,
seems that “wisdom” 
prevailed &
put up the road block between
said possible action &
the reality of 
defeat in 
retrospect---
what could’ve been 
had but only one chance,
one possibility &
all the ifs, ands, ors &
buts, 
left nothing in the seconds after
s/he walked away…
s/he walked away…
yes,
s/he walked away, denied,
leaving 
the other party with
their proverbial pants 
down, with all the time in the 
world to ponder
just what this “wisdom” really is,
with blue balls,
with the bluest of
walls throbbing,
with dissatisfaction
taking its toll & 
lingering viciously,
with oh,
a long night ahead.
