It's all in your head 


He told me this


When I mentioned something about

the text messages on his phone or

notes he left in his pockets


It's all in your head

is what he said when I pointed out his drinking problem,

his hangovers or

his DWIs



It's not real, he said

feigning interest,  I suspect

when I told him I was past depressed

past unhappy

completely miserable 


Of course,  it wasn't in my head

it was in my chest

all along
