Exception


Exception

I cannot say I wanted you fully
Because that is not the case
You were part of my imagined figure
That took a slight fall from grace

Your eyes were as I imagined
But they glistened even as you lied
Alas you were an exception
So I never questioned why

Being puzzled by a puzzle
Lost in a location that is marked
Heart not really attached
So no love found nor even lost

I cannot say I wanted you fully
Because that is not the case
You were an exception to my desires
Something sweet that had a bitter taste

“Sometimes what you get isn’t as sweet as what you truly want… “ -Monica Renata
