Fantasy World

I guess I thought when I left
You’d come after me

That if what we had was real,
You wouldn’t let me slip away

I thought when I broke things off
It was what I wanted

I never thought I’d still be thinking of you

But now I see you with her
And I break a little
You smile at her
And I miss you
You ask my how I’m doing
And I’m so scared you’ll see my smile’s fake
That I know I made a mistake

But you never ask.

So I’ll go on, living in my fantasy world
The one where you’re mine and not her’s
The one where there’s a happily ever after
My fantasy world,
Where I’m forever yours

I’ve realized
My pride is a problem

I wonder
If I should tell you

But then I see you with her
And I break a little
You smile at her
And I miss you
You hug me hello
And I’m so scared I’ll hold on longer than I should
More proof that I’m no good
For you

So I’ll just go on, living in my fantasy world
The one where I can hold youThe one where, this time, I’d stay
My fantasy world,
Where I’m forever yours

I’ve tried every thing
To make the pain stop
But my head won’t listen,
And my heart’s about to pop

And I have to say it,
Even if its only to myself.
I still love you.

Then I see you with her
I see you smile at her
And I know you’re in love, too

So I’ll go on, living in my fantasy world
The one where I tell you how I feel
The one where I get you back in the end
And I’ll try to ignore the way things really are
And I’ll try to pretend what we had meant something
To you, too
My fantasy world
Where I never left
My fantasy world
Where we still loved
My fantasy world
Where I’m forever yours

Something I wrote to work out feelings of heartbreak. I'd originally written this piece as lyrics to a song but only recently decided I liked it as a poem, too. Thanks for reading!
