Stoplights

Green to yellow to red

If only it were that simple

If only hearts worked like a stoplight

If only red meant to please, back away

And green meant I need you, now

And yellow meant I don’t know what will happen, but let’s take it slow. 

How much heartbreak

Pain

Suffering

Could we prevent

If only we had the courage to say so.
