Maybe

Every happy ending has
a tragic beginning.
Or do tragic endings have
a happy beginning?
Maybe that’s why they’re tragic,
they weren’t meant to be.
Maybe that’s why they’re happy,
they weren’t meant to be.

To be broken means you were once whole.
You simply lost
the pieces of yourself you once treasured.
You simply lost
the reflection of yourself that smiled back.

To be broken means you are missing something.
You simply miss
the old you.
You simply miss
the ease and peace.
What does that feel like anyway?

To be whole means you aren’t cracked.
At least, not visibly.
Yet the light still shines.
How?
There has to be a crack
somewhere.
Are you ever truly whole?

To be whole means you are fragile.
You have so much
to lose.
You’ve gained it all,
you’re brand new.
What now?

Every happy ending has
a tragic beginning.
Or do tragic endings have
a happy beginning?
Maybe that’s why they’re tragic,
they lost everything.
Maybe that’s why they’re happy,
they left the pan for the fire
and have fallen in love
with the heat.
