Lost

By Heather Donald

I get lost in my dream of loving you

Pretending your heart is mine

But reality crashes into my fantasy

Falling to the ground from cloud nine

My body looks like I survived the fall

The truth is I didn’t survive it at all

Still I smile and hide the bleeding

Even though my heart is pleading

I clutch your body and hold it tight

But I know I can’t win this fight

I forget sometimes you’re not mine

Until there’s something to remind

So again I glue together the pieces

The web of cracks always increases

Still I smile and hide the bleeding

Even though my heart is pleading
