rejection.

slowly at first,
unknowing, soothing, empathetic.
and then all at once.

“I’m in love with you, but…”
“…I can’t…”
“…you’re not…”
“…she won’t…”
“…he is…”
“…we would…”
“…they will…”
“…it shouldn’t…”

what is it
about love?
creating a constant
yearning
only a lifetime
of failed attempts.

a creature destined
to fall.
take your time,
but you beg, and yearn
and love.
so she falls
too late
again.

he had only three rules.
and with you,
he broke them all.
