"All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence that you know.”
"Madame, all stories, if continued far enough, end in death, and he is no true-story teller who would keep that from you."
-Ernest Hemingway

it's because I'm afraid that you might see me
that I look away when you enter the room
That I write fiction on my heart
when it has always been so scandalously true

it's because I think you might think about me
sometimes when you shouldn't
but you don't and I know it and I wish you did
because no one really thinks about me anymore

if I wrote a book, you would have a chapter
and you don't even know my name
and to tell the truth I don't know you either
I just picture you to put my thoughts to a face

if you knew what I thought of you
you would probably avoid me whatever it took
and the worst part of all is you'd be right to
and I would need to find someone else to put my dreams in

Then you speak to me like a stranger
don't you know I know you so well
but what you say is all wrong
and you ruin it all because I know that it is the real you

the you I didn't make in my head
the you who says things I don't understand
coming out of your mouth that I shouldn't think about
and I wonder if my you is really inside

are you a figment of my imagination
or do you really know me too
don't worry, I'm not the me you think I am either
just a stranger and her imaginary man
her you
