When, If, and Not

When you date the man you’re going to marry,

only to realize you don’t want to be married.

When you love the woman you wish you could be,

only to realize you could never be loved.

When you kiss someone goodbye,

only to realize you were saying hello.

When you break your heart,

only to realize it never needed mending.

When you hold someone close,

only to realize you pulled them through you.

When you become a parent,

only to realize you are barren.

When your adjectives become the adverbs of the actions

you wish you could perform.
