You Came Along

You came along
unexpected, yet true.
I beheld what I craved,
I beheld what was you.

You proved me so wrong
in all I had thought.
'Too good to be true',
but true I had sought.

You were what I craved
in tempestuous ways,
my heart did its flips,
it relished the craze.

The torturous song came
long after the maze,
long after you shielded
me with your haze.

For two nights I was yours
so entirely pure,
little did I know
what I'd have to endure.

The promises unspoken,
but still always there,
I always believed
and I thought you were fair.

But the sun brought light
the haze had gone,
and all that was left
was how I was wrong.

To follow my heart
seemed always absurd,
and yet there I was,
believing every word.

I denied me myself
what I always believed,
I gave you it all,
and me you deceived.

I guess I can take
the lesson I've learned,
just believe what I am
and never get burned.

    Beautiful, heatbreaking, and positive, in equal amounts.
