Two Worlds

I'm sitting in my room all alone.
At least that's how it would appear.
Something else is keeping me company.
You may think it's these sweet beats forming a melody
But really I'm just talking to my dear.
Wondering how I talk to someone who isn't near?

It's easy: I take out paper and a pen.
As I write to him I slip into a world of my own.
I'm no longer writing; I'm talking to him.
He's with me, lending a listening ear.
As I spill my thoughts,
He smiles and gently nods in response.

I close my conversation lovingly,
And fade back to what you may call reality.

But I keep him in my heart,

Only to look forward to the next time,

When I slip into my world of sweet sublime.
