Not So Perfect

I put him on a pedestal

And thought he was saintly

Only when time separated us

Did I see him more clearly

He was not the hero

I so strongly thought he was

And he had told me more than once

He was not the man I built him up to be

Why did I let love blind me

To the truth that was in front of me

I still ache for that knight in shining armor

But sadly he only existed in my heart

  1. I love it! Simple and true! Almost any normal girl has been in that space- We think him saintly yet he is but that!
