Hopeless Romantic

I’ve always believed
in fairy tales
and Prince Charmings.


 I believed in true love,
in chivalry and passion,
that it could last forever.


But I was let down,
and deserted.


I now realize
idealism blinded me
from the truth,
that love is nothing
but an illusion.


I’m not so much
a hopeless romantic anymore…
just hopeless.
