to the lady in my head (ii)

She’s the star of my world

The sun in my sky

The world of my eye

The dream that won’t die


And when I see her

I must lower my eyes

And wonder what she would give

To let a worm crawl out of my mind


Say you love me

And I’ll whisper it too

Say it lovely

And the more I’ll miss you


Tell me the same

And I blush and hide

Because the weight of this bubble

Has clouded my spirit


And tho I know in my soul

You’re just a ghost for me to long after

The truth is you linger

Like the drift of smoke from the joint


So I tell you again

Your nothing

Not even a friend

I still hear you’re doing fine


And tho that gladdens my heart

Even when it reminds I’m not fine

The truth is

You’ll never be mine


And honestly

I’d still check you out

Even when they say you’re dead

Because I love you too much


And how they hold you up upon my back

Tho we’re two strangers

Drifting away across a void

I’m still the one who waits


Wondering if the voice that says it destiny

Is really just a tease pushing me away

From reality and into your arms

Where lovely and divine intertwine


Maybe that makes me a dreamer

Maybe a little sad

I went to the doctor

And she said it was sickness in the head


But your pulse still beats

Your music still in my ears

Your image in Google

Your voice on the radio


And when I see you for the first time

Pinch me and tell me I’m fine

Because the words still come

And lately I’ve been drinking the wine


About Michael Medlen

My name is Michael and during my free time I avoid having a day job. Strangely enough, this gives me the freedom to run this blog. I write just about anything that can be considered art. I also occasionally post articles that may or may not be relevant to the theme of this site. You’ve been warned.
