For many hours we spoke.
It came to me that perhaps
You were history repeating itself.
That maybe you weren't real-
Or I wasn't.
Either seemed more probable than
Some like you and someone like me
Actually being together.
So I debated,
And you replied,
Your answers were not as I expected
Lending credit to your claims.
The nagging doubt will exist,
Until the day we finally meet
Face to face,
Flesh to flesh.
I might doubt.
Some hallucinations seem VERY real.
But even if you AREN'T,
Even if I am a figment of your imagination,
Or you of mine,
I hope you never vanish.
That we will always be at least friends.
I cannot bear to lose anymore people I care about.
I cannot lose YOU.
Promise not to vanish,
And don't banish me
If I turn out not to be real?
You must need me,
Like I need you…
I have a hard time decideing what and who is real...
I keep telling you that you're smart! This is great stuff.
I agree that it really is so personal and emotional. I wonder the same things sometimes. But I'm pretty sure you're real!
This was really beautiful. I loved how it was so personal and emotional, yet it was something that lots of people can probably relate to. Gorgeous piece.
