I loved you even before I met you.
I created a man in my mind's eye,
so perfect he must be an illusion.
Then I met you, and saw you were true ;
you washed away all my confusion.
With blinders off, I let you in
to every part of my being.
Your truth and love lit the way,
and life became worth seeing.
So where did we go wrong?
Was it you,
pretending to possess all the qualities on my list?
Was it me,
projecting qualities that didn't exist?
You were the man of my dreams,
Then I woke up.
