To Be

I wanted you to be more,
to be this image,
this fictional character
I had concocted.

I wanted you to be
strong and perceptive,
sweet and lonely,
someone who could
save me
from the tattered world
in which I wandered,

but you weren’t those things.

You were you,
someone I didn’t know,
someone who
smelled a bit the same,
looked a little familiar,
but the differences
added up to stranger.

It’s dangerous
to see people
as more than what they are,
to see them as we want them to be.

I imagined a dream,
a reckless and beautiful magic,
but you were just a boy,
and I wanted you to be a hero.
