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.
