She Isn't Real

She isn't real.
Near mere measures of perfection,
Upon the pedestal to be placed.
All faults beyond my exception;
Within consciousness falsities laced.

Wanted to feel,
Mortal intimacies elicited by her proximity,
To finally feel wholeness fulfill.
Cover my existence with normality,
Ultimately gratifying my eternal thrill.

Inability to deal:
Simple presents pose problematic,
Appearances irrational without reason,
Alterations of plans appear automatic.
My heart, ignoring my mind, commits treason.

Heart will seal.
Now my inabilities stretched past feeling.
Outward perceptions beyond dealing.
Consciousness and soul left reeling.
Uncomprehending of the things she's been stealing.
She isn't real.

    Casey This is a powerful and deep write. The reader is taken on a journey of emotion and heart wrapped around pain and sorrow. Nice job

    wow Casey - Welcome to Poetry Soup and what an amazing way to begin that journey here......well done. Beautiful, but there is so much deception or mis guided hopes you have worn from a person who was not who you thought they were. Excellent poetry...really enjoyed reading it - Shaz

    Thank you for your kind words Skyler. This poem means a lot to me because it’s the first poem I ever tried my hand at and it’s a very personal one; it’s about getting my heart broken by a person who I thought to highly of. It sat on my computer for many years until I felt comfortable enough to let others read it.
