But We Can Understand

Hurt
to find the
truth that we
don’t love each
other anymore

but
we can understand.

Hurt
to part ways
and leave what
we have started

but
we can understand.

And
we try too much.
We try too much

to understand.

    The pain of heartbreak isn’t easy. We often try to understand much – as if it eases the pain – when we only need to realize “it is.” Beautiful thoughts.

    This speaks to me, as humans we often think of things as controllable but we often forget that things are as they will be
