she’s in love with a character who
never existed but in the labyrinth of her head:
a patchwork composition of beautiful, lengthy words
she’d heard in her catatonic state; coma living
day in and day out, reliant on the salvation
of a man made of foreign wishing
and imperfection and necessity – an ignorance
of the less than ideal perception of self she’d
come to fear, absention stained romantic to the point
where daydreams were a standard for survival

(real living is for the purposeful of heart,
he loves her in her sleep)
It's always easier to love someone who doesn't exist

this is so true... you see these people on TV or in books, they seem jolly perfect to you, and all the people around you seem so hard to love. For an imaginative mind it'd difficult to remind ones self that they are fake, and it's the people around you that really matter.

this is lovely, by the way. :)

Coming from a girl who has fallen in love with fictional characters since she was old enough to discern the attractiveness of certain Pokémon boys, I concur with this piece in more ways than one.

P.S. ...I was nine.

ahhhh that's not nearly as bad as the imaginary people I've fallen in love with. I actually wrote this about how I used to make up romance stories in my head when I was little so I could fall asleep. I did that for longer than I should willingly admit.

also, you're adorable :la:

Oh, I kinda do that too. Still. I honestly do. ...I've created the perfect character in my mind that I love.

I'm not adorable, I'm extremely eccentric and strange. ^^;
