Haiku No. 477: Understanding

I wish you’d told me
I wanted to understand
Why we took that turn

And so it’s written
The end of our sweet story
Was now a fierce storm.

Truth came in torrents
Like the hardest rain cleanses
Answers became clear

The storm is over
We are gone from each other
I understand now.
