I Put You On A Pedestal

I put you on a pedestal
I thought you were perfect
I could not see any of your flaws
Especially the ones that were responsible for my suffering
I thought you were generous
It turns out that you were giving me the basics, what all human beings deserve
I don’t know how I did not see
How much potential you had to harm me
I mistook your characteristics for love
And that mistake has cost me a lot
More than you care to understand
