Yet

I don't want to be single

yet

due to repeated investigation
I am well aware
that there is nothing out there
worth dating or
a long term relationship

yet

I don't want to be single

though I have been lied to and
abused and poorly treated repeatedly
as I keep hoping that it will be
different
this time

yet

I don't want to be single

somehow, inexplicably,
there is still a tiny sputtering flame of hope
though I know better
it never is any better
same creepy men, different year

yet...

"Begin Again" by Taylor Swift
