It's only me.
You're not real,
This is only a dream.
Sometimes I wish I could wake up,
I know you wouldn't be there
Sitting beside me.
It's only me.
I'm awake
while I'm asleep.
I see you all the time,
but I know you're not real
And you'll never be.
It's only me.
So much time
spent alone in the dark,
no one real to talk to here,
everyone else is just a dream.
Yes, that includes you.
It's only me,
Without anyone else.
Sometimes I wish that you were real,
But that is not possible,
So unrealistic.
It's only me.
Just waiting
To wake up from this dream
That's when you dissapear.
I am the only one that's real,
In this world of dreams.

This is really good, I'd like it better if you added more imagery and feelings in there, but that's just my personal opinion. Please check out my work, December and Play on Words.
