Infatuation

Infatuation,
self deception,
a world of lies in my soul,
I thought I knew it was true,
but oh-
it was a self depreciating infatuation.
I thought it was love,
but found out the truth,
just another infatuation,
like an addiction,
unhealthy for my heart, soul, and mind,
but clinging deep inside.
With this error in my past,
I've learned, 
grown,
accepted who I was.
Now there is a true love in my life,
not a pitiful infatuation.
Unconditional,
unwavering,
true to the core.
I was pulled from the mire that overtook me,
Saved from the life that laid down before,
and I feel acknowledged,
loved without disappointment,
and know that there is no longer an infatuation.
