I Decided Today

I decided today

that I do not exist

I am merely

an imaginary story

 

Every person I have ever encountered

is my storyteller

 

They will tell you

about the woman they see

the way she smiles

The taste of her laughter

Which seems to cover

the agony she tries so hard to hide

They will tell you

About how sweet

and how innocent she is

 

ask my brother and he

will unravel my inner darkness for you

He will tell you

How lost I am

But baby

I am not lost

I simply

Do not exist

 

I look at myself from afar

And I see my brother

my father and mother

I see my friends my relatives

And some strangers

Across the streets

At the coffee shop

Bookstores or theater

 

They see me

But there has never been a me

I am nothing

But their imaginary story
