Go Back?

I want to go back to a simpler time

When we could believe what we were told.

When we would hand our heart to someone

And it mattered to them.

When deals were made, and confirmed

With a shake of a hand.

When honor

Was far more popular

Than betrayal.

I want to go back to when marriages meant

Nobody was ever walking away

No matter what

They were working through it.

I want to go back to a time before computers

Before you could hide behind them

Like a coward

Pretending you feel things that you don’t.

I want to go back to simpler times

Back to when I could believe

When it wasn’t popular to be cruel.

When I felt like I deserved to be held

When I felt like I deserved to be loved

When I got a glimpse of it

And I would chase it with such ferocity

That it would consume me.

 

Maybe I don’t want to go back

Maybe I just want to believe.
