I’m sure you’d try…then start laughing
then give up, and end up talking

I’m sure you’d hug him, and he’d hug you
I’m sure you’d talk, and playfully argue

I’m sure you’d cry, because you’ve missed him
Somewhere along the line, you’d go out on a limb

I’m sure he’d look at you in shock, maybe even gasp
I’m sure you’d wonder if he’s slipping from your grasp

I’m sure you might be terrified, of what he might say next
But with the words he’d really speak, you’d simply be perplexed

I’m sure you’d try to hide surprise, to not make him feel unsure
I’m sure you’d feel quite silly, I mean, why ever feel insecure?

I’m sure your hug would change to a kiss, you’d feel safe against his chest
You’d wonder why not sooner, and be so glad that you’d confessed

I’m sure you’d look at him, stare at those beautiful eyes
I’m sure you’d trust him, not believe him capable of lies

I’m sure he’d watch your face, making you feel so utterly exposed
His lips would be so very soft on yours, your eyes would flutter closed

I’m sure you’d beg him not to stop, he’d say those soothing words
I’m sure your heart would beat so fast, like that of a frightened bird.

I’m sure in the morning you’d wake up, and regret all that has been
You’d look at the empty bed, know that he’d played you like a violin

I’m sure you might go crazy, of course you’d be enraged
I’m sure you won’t be happy to find out it had been staged

I’m sure of this, because i know, how it feels to be left alone
And I’m telling you this, because I just wish I could’ve known

    I really like your diction throughout the poem, it creates this foreboding…like you know it’s coming but you just can’t get away and keep hoping you’re wrong…it’s a lot like life that way. The last line was also very unique, on the one hand it was melancholy and touching and heartbreaking but something else also screamed out like a Mom or a Best Friend that just can’t resist saying, “I told you so”. This is truly beautiful.
