Pedestal

I put you on a pedestal
You gave me the basics but because I’ve never had it before, I declared you perfect
A flaw was never a flaw because it was yours
I turned all of the red flags into red roses
And I continued to gift myself bouquets even though you knew you were giving me heartbreak
I carried super glue
And each time you’d rip a piece of me with your words and your actions
I’d glue parts of what you’d taken and tried to mend my heart
I put you on a pedestal
And that is my biggest regret
No one, no matter how much you love them
Belongs on a pedestal
