Hope and disappointment
Hope for love, but
You learn to weather the disappointment.
For four years, my heart yearned after him.
Now I've learned better.
We are no better suited to each other
Than an octopus and an aardvark.
We tried, but no longer will I fight nature.
I deserve better, as do you.
I'm sorry if I break your heart, but..
Goodbye. For real, this time.
