A stupid mindset I used to have and have now gotten over

Sometimes I wonder
How stupid could I be
You actually thought that would work?
Well now you’re on your knees
 
I consume myself
In the make believe
Cause I’m sick of the what this world
Has shown itself to be
 
Hopeless romantic
Something I’m known to be
But I have taken it too far
This is not a movie
 
Adorable scenes
And jaw dropping lines
These are all ridiculous things
I wanted in my life
 
I pushed it too hard
Tried to make it happen
This isn’t a fairytale
And I have smothered a real man
 
Like a thick, black sludge
Consuming your body
Even when I was told to stop
I let it keep coming
 
Attached to a feeling
I hadn’t felt before
I was stuck on a cloud nine dream
So hard to ignore
 
The distance from you
Has helped me to see
That the feelings I had for you
Didn’t set you free
 
And now I feel like
A little school girl
Who had a ridiculous crush
On the high school senior
 
 I look around and
Watch other people
I can’t help but feel stupid
Love isn’t a fairytale
 
I knew all along
This isn’t a surprise
I didn’t realize before
But the feeling has certainly died
 
I don’t want this love
If it’s all cute and sweet
Cause then it’s fake and make believe
This I won’t repeat
 
This is real life
Not a comedy romance
So let’s run a few errands
Do things a relationship demands
 
I know I wouldn’t want
You all over me
So please,
Accept this apology
 
I know I don’t want it
Cause the last guy who tried
I got rid of so fast. You know why?
It’s too much to handle I find
 
I gladly kiss
These feelings goodbye
I couldn’t wait for them to leave
Now I’m feeling so high
 
That’s not to say
It’s okay once in a while
But the constant attention
Leaves a relationship dry
