all I know is that stories like ours end in heartbreak
they never make it to the greatest loves of all time
no matter how passionate or intentional we are
the love simply isn’t enough.
you know when they ask me to write love stories
they always end in tears
that’s all I know
that’s the ultimate outcome.
so pardon me,
for being a coward, and a pessimist
at the very thought of the possibility of our love story
i think of how things will end
all i know is i don’t wish to cry tears on you.
