You were not the beginning of the end nor the end of a wonderful glorious beginning but a kindling to a new flame.

through your flaws so poetically hidden through silken-ed tongue and proclamations of false passion, you unintentionally taught me some of the most important lessons I'd ever learn...you showed me to be careful what I wish for, because I may just get it, for love when I'm not ready for the potential failure that lyes within it if both partners lack the maturity to truly hold on to what it is that was asked for to begin with, for romance when there's so much more to the word than a hug and kiss that goes beyond the simple term into what it is I actually wanted but couldn't grow past the word to get to,for a fairy tale ending when in storybooks after happily ever after, all there could have been doesn't exist outside the author's pen and the readers imagination, exactly as I wished. You taught me that I deserved more than I expected and should expect twice as much if not exact because if I don't ask, I won't receive (there's irony somewhere in this) for realistically, you taught me that asking isn't always guaranteed  approval .....you taught me what more I should ponder and what less I should want for this way of thinking somehow gets it all.....you taught me that true love begins through the eyes of the source to the reflection in the mirror, I must realize my value before them, because if not, it leaves them room to devalue what was once indeed precious and I too naive to see. You took the very foundation of everything I thought I was, shoved it in my face and let it drop to the floor In a single movement, in the same breath you told me with no words that there will be times my best won't be good enough and giving my all will amount to nothing much on a grander scale of things in a way of saying I won't be good enough for most until I'm perfect to one. You revealed the truth behind "forever" as being the longest promise, the shortest goodbye, and the last resort. You highlighted, bold faced and italicized the mechanics of a prince charming, you left no room for further error, without you I could not have opened my eyes to who I truly am, a young lady gifted to love with openness as to be taught from the wrong to cherish what's right... Thank you.
