Should Have

Should’ve taken your hand,
said I loved you so,
lied through my teeth,
that’s the way it goes.
Could’ve had something real,
held you real close,
become someone worthwhile.
Would’ve been happy,
if I’d just taken your hand.
But I spurned your touch,
ran as far as I could.
I have nothing real.
I have nothing true.
I should’ve love you,
but I don’t.
Couldn’t convince my heart;
I couldn’t be untrue.

Prompt: Should Have
