In The Daze - Poem by Imaanah Saleem

You tell me that you love me,
But you don't even know me,
You said to take your word for it, and you promised you would show me,
At first I didn't want to,
Then I began thinking of some reasons why I should,
Ooh! How persuasive I am,
I convinced myself to bet my wealth on you, in regards to your assumptions of love,
Because supposedly it is the key
The definition of you and me together,
Always and forever,
You quoted in a letter,
Words from a song you somehow knew to be my fave,
Now I'm in the daze,
I'm going through a faze,
Recalling my past crushes, which in the end became a haze,
But today's dream seemed real,
And I began to feel,
Excited,
Yes the thought of being loved had given me a thrill,
Until,
I noticed something different,
In my stomach was a chill,
It hit me in an instant,
This whole card's deal,
Turns out it wasn't real
It was just my imagination,
A mere fantasy,
Reality's imitation, I suppose,
I find it hard to close the gates to this dimension,
My attention span is too short for boredom,
So when I am, I take a break from reality,
But for a moment I couldn't see what was true or false,
For a moment you were there,
And for a moment my mind was lost,
But I'm here now,
Aware now of the difference between,
The single life in which I live,
And a mere daydream.
