So Dang Idealistic

I fell in love

With the idea

Of someone

Who really understood

Me, and you know

What I’m all about

They seemed to understand

But honestly

The more I reflect

The more I see the cracks

And I start to feel

Hopeless about the fact

That I keep projecting

Love onto loveless things

Crafting an ideal fantasy

Of the way they are and

What they really say

Truth is

They did the same

Perhaps we are both

Going rogue, off-script

I am cuffed to this

I cannot stop thinking

About the love I felt

From a woman that

Never existed

I think I catfished myself

Just by being

So dang idealistic
