Love on My Own

by Quincey G

Love

Felt only on my own

Confined to the inner sanctions of my mind, only for me to know.

 

Love

I walk with you hand in hand

A pretend moonlight stroll down a busy city street, or a long daytime ramble in the woods.

 

Love

My heart skips a beat as you walk beside me

Your eyes burn through me as you steal a quick glance out of the corner of your eye

 

Love

We walk alone together until morning

All I see, all I feel, is you and me and nothing of the real world, where my heart is shattered into pieces

 

Love

I watch as you give your heart away

The words that I heard you secretly profess to me, you now utter in someone elses ear

 

Love

With all of my heart and soul I know that we are not the forever and forever I see in my mind, or feel in my heart

You only exist in my mind, where all I see is starlight and infinite possibilities with your arms around me

 

Love

I am jolted awake from my dream

I see that without me your world goes on, you happy and blissful with her, while mine stops turning

 

Love

I realize that love on my own, without you, does not keep me from the true happiness Id dreamed of only with you

My love is true, so when youre happy I will have already found the joy I thought I d never know without you.
