If I Could

If I could begin at the end I would look back to where I began seeking the mishaps that delivered me to this miserable end I would flatten, crush, and annihilate every wrong step from start to finish, from dusk to dawn from beginning to end I would put down, shut down and stamp on every turbulent word shouted at you in anger with nostrils flared I would trample, mash, pound and destroy every little white pill in your bottomless amber bottles If I could begin again I would take your hand, I would pilfer your heart I would make promises of tomorrows. I would caress you as the endless shore caresses the sea If I could begin again I would feel the pulse of your life touching mine. If we could begin again

That little two letter word if is the key, Jim. I imagine we all have some things in our past we would like to do over. Enjoyed reading you today.
