Temporary Fantasy

Sometimes I can’t help but thinking of the past
I try not to but it rears its head, time and time again

It’s lovely
It’s ugly
I’m regretful
I’m thankful

Sometimes I can’t help but wonder why life flies by so fast
Drifting out of sight like puddles absorbing the rain

I hesitate
I accelerate
It’s memorable
But I’m forgetful.

Sometimes my heart drifts away to scenes not meant to last
Floating on decisions from which I can never refrain.

Temporary fantasy?
Maybe a reality
Singing an age old song
Hope I don’t get it wrong

What If

What if I were really dying
And none of this was real
Just a dream
Of how it would have been

What if we had never met
And you were with someone else
So in love
And you never knew I ever existed

What if this is how our lives would be
If I hadn’t died that night
An overdose
And there were no second chances

What if this will all go away
In just a few more seconds
When I die
On the hood of my car in my driveway

It was a good dream

Sunday Morning Reality

Sunday Morning
Cooking up the bacon
Everybody is still asleep
Why am I always the first to awaken?
Solitude is my nemesis
Dragging my thoughts too deep

Into reality

Sometimes I don’t want to be
          With you
Sometimes I don’t want to be
          With anyone at all
It’s not your fault
It’s not you
It’s me
I know this isn’t how it’s supposed to be

In my reality

Sometimes you don’t really
          Love me
Sometimes you don’t really
          Love me at all
You’re just scared
To be alone
I know
This was never how you wanted it to be

In your reality

Sunday morning
Cooking up the eggs
Everyone is now awake
Why do I feel like I’m always pretending?
Serving up what they want to have
Feeling like such a fake

It’s their reality

You know I will forever be
          Right here
You know I will forever be
          Right here with you
Don’t be afraid
I’ll never go
Away
I need you as much as I know you need me

And that’s reality
