Too Late

I had only said it once before,
out loud, I mean, not actually to
the person
So, when I said it to you, it was
a risk–and I, risk averse.

I would take it back now
if I could
Because the pain is now
unbearable–
I should like to wall myself up
the way Montressor did to Fortunado–
Yes, bricked in for saying,
“I love you.”

We may never pass this way again, but we are here together today.
