The Ambivalence of Moving Forward

The answers to my story
are always the same.
“You’re better off…”
“You’ll find someone else…”
“Something so brittle was bound to break.”

I very much want them to be wrong about you
but I can’t make you prove it
and I can’t wait forever.
In between those two endings,
so precious little I know how to say.
