In love with the dream

written by: Tearful Angel

So maybe we fell for the dream
We got caught up in the possibilities,
over flowing maybes and what ifs
that drowned us as we consumed the desire to receive in material
the things we believed we need.

The growing lie we told ourselves
Day in and day out
The story we began to believe
Fables of who we want to be
and how we want to feel
Ignoring who we really are
Ignoring what we really need.

Did we ever truly fall in love?
Was that your heart I saw?
Or the mask you put up like a wall for So long
that you forgot it was ever there?
Was that my heart I gave
Or just a mock symbol of all I believed love should be?

Maybe we're meant to be,
Or Maybe you're a safety screen,
Because now when I look at this supposed romantic scene
I can't help but wonder if...
Maybe we just fell in love with the dream.
