"You Are In My Thoughts"
Never did appeal to me
Only what I
Thought was real to me
Had any impact on my psyche
Exact and more than likely
Registering in my consciousness
Nervous I'm a conscious mess
Infiltrating my own system of survival
Gaining strength from my arch rival
Holding on to my archival of
And now that I've found what I've sought
Looks like it all was not for naught
On the surface this ordeal to me
Negates what seemed unreal to me
Either abstract or through what a dream has brought
You are in my thoughts
