I have been in love
with many fictional characters in my life.
I have seen their fears and felt their pain,
and I’ve cried myself to sleep
when I wished if only they weren’t fictional,
But in the end, I had to say goodbye to them as they weren’t real.
I feel the same tonight,
except tonight’s there are no goodbyes to say,
I can’t seem to sleep even after crying,
you are not fictional at all,
even though how much I wish you were.
