Something Else

When you love someone so much, for so long
If it never quite materializes the way you think it should be,
The way it should be
The way it could be
Does it become something else?
Maybe just a fantasy, imaginary
A challenge,  protection, infatuation
Redemption or idealistic projection
A way to hide, from trying for something else
Something you tried, like fear of flying
You get over it with help,
Yet the memories will stay alive
And haunt the days and nights the same
such lonely times rarely get the blame
It's still messed up and vague
The something missing turns up often
just to be reality
And with it Lovelorn sage
