Used

Me? I’m just a figment
of your imagination,
that’s all.

Yes.
I will always say yes.
Always.
To whatever you need.
But that is because
I’m
not
real.

A real person has no needs
of their own;
has no urges,
no motivations
no real life;
therefore,
I must be an illusion.
Except, of course,
for those times when you
bring me to life
by wanting me,
just for a moment, just for now,
not to have with you
forever, of course,
because that would mean
I am part of your
real life.

Because I don’t exist,
not in the real world,
or at least not in yours.

Or perhaps the
me
that you think I am
is what really doesn’t
exist.

Perhaps there is a real me,
but you simply
cannot
understand
that there are needs
beyond
yours.

Unrequited

Open
your eyes to see me.

Open
your heart, I’m here.

Look at me
as more than a friend,
or pal
or whatever it is
you see me as.

I would love you
so hard.
