Great Expectations

I had expectations of you, without knowing why

 I craved from you an understanding of self

Myself
An understanding by which I need not speak a word

And you would move,

I put so much hope in you, so much faith

Naivety over took me,

Consuming all remnants of rational thoughts

Foolishly I believed that if I raised the pedestal

If I placed you upon it, you’d live up to my expectations

I see my folly, I see my mistake

Placing upon you a weight you could not carry

Requiring what you could not give.

Yet, I’m yet to decide whether I expected to much

Or that you simply weren’t worthy
