I panicked.

I’m sorry.

If I could take it back,

I would have ended it the first time.

Two endings

are more final than one.

There is something more conclusive

this time around.

I never intended to inflict pain.

I loved you.

Didn’t you see that?

I couldn’t say it, but

did you not feel it?

It’s true.

I could not be…

What you wanted.

What I wanted.

What they thought we were…

Things often happen

for the sake

of our sakes;

and though we are bent

and twisting

towards the now absent light of love,

we are not without

hope.
