Until we get to the point
where we’ve had enough
of things that hurt
and long more than anything
for a peaceful love,
we are bound to take painful roads.
We are destined to play out our frivolous disasters
until we declare ourselves finished and done with them.
How much pain do we have to suffer
before we are sure we want no more?
As much, it seems, as we have to
until we don’t.
