In My Mind, Outside My Mind

In my mind I'm running miles.
In my mind I'm learning the tango.
In my mind I'm picking flowers.
In my mind I'm sweet and gorgeous.

In my mind I'm singing loud.
In my mind I'm sketching brilliantly.
In my mind I'm riding horses.
In my mind I'm just enchanting.

In my mind I'm catching dragon.
In my mind I'm watching sunsets.
In my mind I'm laughing brightly.
In my mind I'm swaying slowly.

But here's the catch, the little twist.
That's in my mind, but that's not real.
"Real" is sitting in class, simple and plain.
Simple brown hair, plain brown eyes.
Just a simple plain girl outside my mind.

i feel it most everyday, and i don't understand why others say what they do. i don't feel pretty like a lot of ppl say, unless I'm thinking deep in my mind about a completey different life. i love your poem. it connects to everyone

This is amazing! Everyone feels this at one point and you have a great style of writing, since you captured it so simply yet so strongly. Blew my mind! Please continue :)
