Necessary Endings (Poem)

I’m not a woman who believes in fairy tale endings,

I’m not a woman who believes in staying through all the bad,

I am a woman who believes in necessary endings,

I am a woman who believes in leaving when I don’t want to deal with the bad,

I’ve been too disappointed and hurt to believe in fairy tale endings.

 

I can leave today or I can leave tomorrow,

That’s why I can’t promise you forever,

You can leave today or you can leave tomorrow,

That’s why you shouldn’t promise me forever,

All we can do is be thankful if we stay today and if we stay tomorrow.

 

Still we were always honest from the beginning,

We stated that there’s always going to be the possibility of goodbye,

We knew the reasons for leaving from the beginning,

Still we both know it won’t be an easy goodbye,

The goodbye won’t ever be easy no matter what we said in the beginning.
