I know you will never read this.

I know you will never get the chance to even catch a glimpse of this.

But I just want you to know that I love you.

You're perfect to me. I don't care about your flaws. I don't care about the faults that everyone else always seem to point out.

I really don't care.

What matters to me is that you are you. And because you are you, I love you.

I just wish you could love me back.

I just wish you could say the same words to me--to make me believe that I'm not the worthless thing I see in the mirror every day.

I just wish you could be here, comforting me when I need it, and telling me you love me over and over again. I promise I would never get tired of those three simple words:

"I love you."

But how can you love me back?

You're not even real.
It's sad, when I think about it. The fact that I am literally in love--or what I perceive to be "in love," being that I have never truly experienced the sentiment--with fictional characters.

What's even more sad is that I don't think I'll ever get out of that.

I would give anything in the world for them to see this.

I don't want to face reality. I just want them to read what I have to say to them.

I want them to actually hear me say it in person even more.

How do you do nowadays? I've just read these lines and say: omg it's me/I thought exactly the same thing. Except the last line. In my case the guy was real(but I have a thing with hetalia guys).

This is just wonderful. I'm sure a bunch of people feel this way, and I'm one of them. Thanks for putting this into words. It is amazing.

I can't even express how much I can relate to this...
I'm at that point that I have created a fictional version of myself to make it all seem sensible

I know that feeling. I get it a lot. It really and truly just plain sucks when you realize that the person you are pining over/have a crush on is merely a handful of pixels on a screen or, as Stephen King put it, "a bag of bones". You begin to treasure the character(s). This poem probably helps a lot of people relate. It's beautiful.

I know that feel-just look at my signature.

This... is so very, very true. Not just for you, but for me, and probably just about anybody else reading this...

Yeah. I know. It's kind of painful, isn't it?
JakeDanielson Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2012
Beautiful. I can relate completely. However, you phrased it so much better than I could ever.

Thank you. And, well, I think everyone can relate. Thus why I typed this up.
