Is it you that this feeling grows for,
or is it the idea of you?
Does the affection flowing through me occur
for the blood and flesh version of you?
Or does it course through my veins
based on the dream-forged version of you?
Do I really want to work through
the difficulties and blessings of love with you?
Or do I just want the fantasy?
These questions may forever go unanswered
as the simplest inquiry may remain
the one door I do not open.
