still too scared

if i wasn’t so afraid of rejection,
i’d probably be writing you the
most ridiculous romantic poem
ever created
but instead
i’m just drinking away the misery
trying to remember your face
while music plays in the background
and the football game is on the t.v.
and the dog chokes on its old age.
