Truly

It’s easy to love people from afar

Yet a struggle to embrace them truly

Closely

For when they depart

How fleeting are the memories

    When they stay, too, it’s sometimes hard to truly embrace them.

    So true. Idealism will hurt us when we realize people are not what we dreamed them to be. But still flawed love is love.

    Perhaps we all simply have to accept that those we love will always be flawed, and hope that the flaws of those we’ll come to love, we won’t even consider to be flaws, but rather characteristics of their personality, little quirks.
