I don’t know where to start,
I got caught up in the idea of him
through the minor details.
Everything lost but the deafening
sound of my own heartbeat.
The story unfolded the way I didn’t want it,
Mistrusted the narrative of my own memory.
I’m sorry for the trouble in my stubbornness,
I was just excited to meet you.
Now, we won’t even be friends thanks to my emotions.
Leads my mind running in circles,
Escape the feelings to ink them upon paper.
Disappointment over nothing,
Fairytales never show the truth.
Looks like prince charming never found my glass slipper,
Should have left a business card with it.
Not even rejected when I wasn’t chosen.
Hope you find what you’re looking for,
Someone who has better chances.
I’m still glad I met you,
The memory will forever set my heart a glow.
