every time you fell in love
you had to say goodbye?
(Every love story winds up a tragedy
if you don’t end it soon enough)
What if you really loved someone
and you where not allowed to tell them?
(Unrequited love is the most insidious torment. . .
What if your best friend
told you that they loved you beyond all sense
and all you said was
“I love you as a friend”?
