You say you love them but you don't know what makes them happy.
You say you love them but you don't know what makes them sad.
You say you love them but you made fun of their dreams and ideas.
You say you love them but you have no idea what kind of stories they would drown in. You
have no idea where they would go to rest their tired minds. You have no idea what they do
to cope with living.
Was it because you were ignorant?
Was it because you don't care?
Do you love them or do you love the version of them you had conjured in your mind?
Do you love them or do you love the idea of them?
Would you notice if it wasn't them, had someone else replaced them?
Or would you be fooled by their outer appearance?
Oblivious to their souls.
Just like any other person would.
Would you tell them this isn't them?
Oblivious how you forced them to be someone else.
Don't you think you know them when all you know are illusions.
Don't say you love them when all you do is shove them your delusions.
Don't say you love them when they have to kill a piece of themselves everyday just to be the
person you want them to.
Do you love them?
Or do you love your own morbid imaginations?
