I once loved a Princess

I once loved a Princess
Her beauty was
Beyond my reach
So very perfect
This Princess
Can I have dreamt it?
Always remembering
Being so in awe
Reality is painful
Yes, I know
Love is hard
We are not angels
We are flawed
It feels like
A cold winter rain
But I remember her
She was my deepest hope
And now I am ashamed
For I lusted
Rather than truly loved
How can I ever trust
My heart again
The memories will remain
And the depths of my despair
The depths of my insanity
Will ever be my bane
