True Love

Photo by yours truly. It seemed oddly appropriate.

I want and refuse;

Look, then turn away.

An unbeliever who wishes she had faith.

Looks are deceiving,

Words too mailable,

Deeds can be undone another day.

Too good to be true,

Too perfect to be real.

You don’t exist.

If we met,

As in a fairy tale,

I’d dream a moment then pass on

And you would never see.

Some dreams should never be brought to life,

Because once they touch air

They fall to dust.
