In My Mind

My Broken Heart

We are together in my mind
but nowhere else.


My thoughts are better
than my dreams.


So I stay awake all night
just to think about you.


I find myself talking out loud
when no one is around.


You smile sweetly at me,
and your happiness makes me whole.


Your kisses brighten
these dark nights.


But it is only in my imagination
because you aren't here.


I pretend that you are mine
but you have never loved me.


I can't live without you,
but I am not part of your world.


I don't want to lose you,
but I never had you to begin with.
