take it back

dark-shadowsA crash.
Pang! Pow! Look out!
Tight jaws and bejeweled fists.
Words spoken, take them back.

Just when things were going great.
The sun was shining, the day bright, possibility sat drunk in love next to you.
How did this happen?

Dark shadows.
A choke, a muffle.
Please stop, it hurts.

I want to rewind time.
I want to take it all back.
I want to start again.
I want to say sorry but it may happen again.

No one ever wins.
