Perhaps I liked the idea of you,
The version of you I created in my dreams,
More than I liked the reality of you,
The person who I found standing before me.
In theory, you were utterly perfect -
And yet in practice,
You fell short of my expectations.
Perhaps I liked the thought of you:
Lending me your jumper on cold winter nights;
Holding me close when the tears started to fall;
Kissing me until my lips were numb with love.
In my head, it all seemed to work -
And yet here we are,
And nothing has gone quite like we expected.
Nothing has gone quite like we expected at all.
i hope you fall in love with someone who makes you question why you ever thought you would be better off alone
