Coming Is The Beginning of Going



There is no point sitting around
remembering when the world loved you.
Love is not a thing that lasts,
it is an ephemeral thing that comes easily
and goes even more—look!
You make yourself a fool
when you refuse to acknowledge
what you have seen!
Favor blossoms, then dies.
There is no point sitting around
waiting for the light to land on you again
when it has moved on.
Everything warm becomes cold.
Embrace your ice.
