Hope and disappointment

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.
