The Ex

You would be perfect, If you were just not quite yourself

"You would be perfect,
If you were just not quite yourself"
We say in unison
face to face
armed to the hilt with subjective logic
standing on moral ground
I miss the idea of you
lingering in my mind
a half formed thought
sometimes if I sit still enough
I can still feel the concept
of the perfection of our connection
but when I blink all is lost in the reality of humanity
the flawed indifference
or perhaps
the decisive defiance
the images that I once held
cascade poetically over the side of my teacup
and form reflective pools of still liquid
that are quickly wiped clean.
