Fantasy Love

Once I thought that I knew what love was

warm sugary feelings

Wrapped around me like grandma’s blanket.

But that is not love.

Love is………

arguing yet still accepting one another.

Love is……..

never seeing one another but know you are there

Love is…….

the ability to see passed your faults and moving forward.

It is not a wonder that love has passed on by

for I dream of a love found in books and fairy tales

Not the love that is really extended.

So I shall say so long and farewell

For I can no longer keep up this fantasy.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
