Romanticized Daydreams

Sometimes, we can’t stop
those romanticized thoughts —
falling for the dream
instead of reality.
And when it happens, we’re left
in the dark with the awful truth
and a shattered heart.

  1. Knocking on Ophelia’s door here. Stay out of that bath tub for a day or two, until it passes. Dreams, like clouds, aren’t built to last. The pieces of a shattered heart, gathered and glued, show us what we’re really made of. Once again, nice work.
