In My Mind
I miss you with every fiber of my being.
I get all mushy inside at the thought of you.
Then I run off with these thoughts of all
I’d like to be doing to you, for you, with you.
In my mind, you’re still all you promised to be
And everything I’d dreamt you up to be.
In my mind, the love is mutually unconditional;
The desires equally uninhibited.
From the physical, emotional, spiritual we’re in sync
And I couldn’t be happier.
In every way I could love a man I feel you.
‘Cause in my mind you’re all I need
And my life is complete with you.
But then I inhale a deep breath of reality,
My blurred vision slowly clears…
You are not the man of my dreams,
You don’t add sunshine on cloudy days;
You’re never there to wipe away my tears.
You know not, feel not, show not, and are not love…
A beautiful shell, so empty inside.
Your perfection is all there, yes…
But only in my mind.

Hmmm… That’s all I’m going to say. But I feel you, sometimes you have to ask yourself if you love a person, or just love the image of them that you have in your mind.
Yup, yup, that’s exactly what the piece is all about. I haven’t “been there” in a LONG time, but I’ve definitely been there a few times. Perhaps, once too many. I was inspired to write this by the one experience/person that I’d say top ’em all! 🙂
I can totally relate. So often I fall in the love with the idea of a thing/person, and don’t really notice the flaws until much later.
It is also true though that sometimes I still love after, flaws and all.
You’re so on that flaws etc comment, Reynold! Same here lol! Eventually of course, I do learn to “let go” but once or twice it has been hard! *Sigh*
You know what they say, don’t date potential.
So often we idolise life and people. Life to me, is accepting all is person was, is and will be with all their complexities, positives and flaws, The Good The Bad The Ugly
