Last Time

Even if it was just a moment

Stopped in my tracks

Halted from my usual daydreams

I wanted to believe

The beauty only I could see

Was real

I was hostile then

Feigned disinterest was my mantra

Now I wish that you could speak

One more word to me

I don't love you

You'll never love me

But I'd do anything

For your false words of praise

That make me feel as beautiful

As only you believe me to be

Standing in front of my mirror

Looking into blurry eyes

I wonder how I'll ever be

As beautiful as you made me

In your mind

How anyone will ever be as perfect

As you were, in mine

The last time I saw you
