Would it have been worth while? (The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock BY T. S. ELIOT)

Your words now have an insidious effect on me
Tedious arguments breaking my heart
Oh, do not ask, “What is it?”
Coz I know you do not give a damn shit

You say
“There will be time, there will be time”
But deep down in the heart of mine,
I know,
Gone is the time
Time for you and time for me

But indeed
There will be time
To wonder,”Do I dare?” and, “Do I dare?”
Do I dare to get out of my chair?
Do I dare to declare?
Do I dare to ask if you care?

I, no more, seek answers though;
For I have known them all already, known them all;

But one last question before I leave the world,
If ever I had given one last chance to us, would it have been worth while?
