And just for thought...
You came to me with paper promises never realizing how quickly they burned
but I accepted them all even if I didn't let you in on it.
I carried myself with such pride that you couldn't see any of it.
You plunged ahead, fiercely courting me as if I couldn't tell.
You offered me gifts of gold and silky words that touched the romantic little girl in me.
You never knew that you were my already my Prince
and I wanted it to be you that I rode into that horizon with.
Though my skin has leathered and my heart is not so fanciful now,
I still believe in those paper promises even though they are ashes now.
You always had a way of seeing into my soul regardless of the guards I put up
and you always had a way of calming the very core of me when no one else could reach.
I stood tall against you even when all I wanted was to melt within you.
I had a defiance you never could understand just the same and I never explained.
It was never that I didn't love you; just didn't know how to show you.
You were the one that lit the match who sent our dreams flying into the air.
What you didn't know was the pride you so loathed became my only saving grace.
You couldn't see the courage that was inside me and I never showed it.
Although my eyes have cried for you and my voice has prayed,
I knew everything you were.
You came to me in friendship and we bloomed into love
but I accepted our flame, how quickly it flared, how quickly it went out.
What you don't know, you will never know, is that you were my first love
and I still remember how you swept me off my feet from your white horse.
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
