Optical Illusion

I hold hope

for the positivity,

the benefit of the doubt

that the way you are treating me now

does not set a precedent

for our future,

but inside I feel

a sinking weight in my stomach

knowing such a statement

is not the truth

I am merely blinding myself temporarily,

igniting a smoke

to block my vision

from the reality of life with you,

struggling to accept

you are not

who I have made you out to be

-POE(MS)
