I once fell in love with a fantasy of a woman

But she failed to live up to the expectations

The fantasy had long black hair, sleek like liquor

Streaming back in the wind each time she rode the motorcycle

And her demure legs were showing above knee high boots

Whilst the real version rode the bicycle everywhere

Had her hair up in a ponytail, sweaty strands

Stuck to her forehead

We eventually split up

Turns out she wanted someone

Just slightly taller.
