When I Open My Eyes

Dreaming,
He loves you,
He got your hand in his,
His arms around you in the hallways,
But when you open my eyes,
He pushes you away,
But you want him so bad,
You know yourself,
You strut down the hallways,
Nobody back-stabs,
But when you open your eyes,
They stab you so many times,
Your heart almost dies,
You fall so hard in the mist of a dream,
Become so confident,
So in love,
So that when I open my eyes,
I see a world filled with monstrosity,
Dreaming.
