Girlish Dreams

Encircled in your arms
held tight
I told you my truth
my history
expecting you to run.
Tears shed
nuzzled my neck
tightened your hold
told me I was safe.
I believed.
I trusted.
Sit here I do
unshed
blurred vision
wondering how it went wrong
wondering
why does it hurt so much still?
Fool.
I was.
Tried to deny
tried to hide
truth
feelings run deep
but
only in me.
What is that song?
Unforgettable?
Forgettable I am.
Heart broken
anger twisted
pain still the same
how do you make it look so easy
to let go
to walk away?

One thought on “Girlish Dreams”

  1. She had girlish dreams
    Of knights in shining armor
    And other shiny things
    But she lived in an imaginary world
    Where nothing is as it seems
    But she doesn’t want to leave
    Reality is too real for her
    She doesn’t want to deter
    Those girlish dreams
