"You're beautiful, I hope you know that"
But I didn't because we were in the therapist's waiting room and I thought you'd think I was being condescending or insincere
"Could you Be quiet please?"
But I didn't because we haven't formally met and I didn't want your first impression of me to be that B next door
"have we met?"
But I didn't because I'm pretty sure we have and I didn't want you to think I'd forgotten you
"Congratulations! You're doing such amazing things!"
But I didn't because I haven't talked with you in years and I didn't want you to think I was only your friend when you succeeded
"I really enjoyed your company though, I wish we could be friends"
But I didn't because I knew that wasn't what you wanted
"You forgot my number?"
But I didn't because I knew you said that to get back at me
"You're the coolest woman here"
But I didn't because you were talking over the presenter and I didn't want to upset people more
"Why are you going so slow?"
I was in the other car and you couldn't hear me
"That hug meant so much to me"
But I didn't because I didn't want you to know how vulnerable I really was
"Are you interested in really getting to know me....ever?"
but I didn't because I was afraid that'd scare you off
Being honest and vulnerable in the moment is not always easy
I will tell you next time
