What's Real

Tue, 04/29/2014 - 13:38 -- Ronaful


What's real is not what's in your head

What's real is not what's in that thing

It's about what is in your heart


Feeling that ache for that one guy or girl

Feeling that love for that favorite toy

A child knowing their parent loves them


That moment of true dispare 

As you watch the one person you trusted

Treat like a speck of dust


Keeping everything close at hand

Never trusting

Never loving
