Turning The Page

Turning The Page

The writing is on the wall
The letters are big and bold
and you still don’t see it
It could be in neon lights
but you will squint and look
the other way
It is the end of a chapter
and time to turn the page

The storybook beginning
became an arduous read
We got lost in the
descriptive passages
of someone else’s love story
Refusing to read between
the lines and closing the book
to avoid the obvious ending
