I always thought that love

Would be like the quotes of long ago famous men.

But when I look at the love

I feel for you,

I disagree with all those words.

Plato, Einstein, and Tolstoy were wrong.

The touch of love has not made

A poet of my heart.

The words do not flow freely

From my ever beating love.

The feel of your eyes piercing my skin burn

A fiery flame that only burns out

When I wander away.

But your presence never leaves me.

You are the knight in shining armor that my locked away heart dreams of

Forever.

You are the one who will fight off the dragon

If you find you are ever so willing.

Thoughts of your feigned love are

What make me realize

That I am beautiful because I feel loved.

If only your smile gave me the truth

Of your feelings-

Only so that I do not do something crazy

Like believe my hopes.

So, forgive me Sleeping Beauty, but

You were wrong.

The dreamworld was always better.
