This one is also sort of about relationships; meaning to express what it’s like if you keep convincing yourself that your partner/boyfriend/girlfriend is something that they are not, and then getting hurt or disappointed every time they prove to be different than what you wish. But, I suppose it could also be applied to other situations of deluding oneself.
Again, please give me feedback if you have any ideas for improvement 🙂
Like a sweet truffle-drizzled cream puff
So hard to resist,
So hard to remember
that you’re not really what you seem.
That’s what it really is
Imagining how sweet and nourishing you are
Because I want you to be,
And turn blind on what really is,
Yet reality will not comply.
That’s what I will feel
If I keep fooling myself,
It hurts to let go of you
But it will hurt more to keep holding on.
The consequences come
No matter what I make myself believe.
Effort and time won’t change
That there is discord
Between truth and desire.
