high hopes, low expectations

Sat, 03/10/2018 - 10:56 -- puffin

You'll have to forgive me for being stoic.
But things won't work out, and I know it.
When you offered me the trip of dreams,
When my success you're quick to deem
Imminent and sure,
I didn't believe your professions.
It's not aggression nor depression;
I've just been disappointed too often,
So high expectations I shake off in
Contempt, despite their allure.
