April 2019 Napowrimo-Day 6

Prompt: write a poem that emphasizes the power of “if,” of the woulds and coulds and shoulds of the world.

If words would make you love me
I’d write a thousand songs
A million poems
Until you fell under my spell
If dreams would make you see me
My ghost would continue
To haunt your sleep
Until you came to know me
As you never did when
I still breathed
By your side

But if you ever cared
I would not now be dead
