Bean Hill

When you know it’s not working.
When there’s nothing quite right.
When there is no anger,
no hatred, no fury
in the disagreements
just a sad awakening
to the knowledge
that paths have diverged
and all the differences have been made
perhaps forevermore.

When you’re afraid it’s over
and you don’t want it to be.
When love hasn’t left the room
but resignation has filled it.
When you almost wish
there was a villain
an enemy
a marked contrast
that would make this all more palatable,
easier to understand.

When you understand it all perfectly
and don’t want it
but know what has to happen.
When you know the future will be better
but you’re not yet prepared
to face it
just yet.
