I fell in love…or came close, at least, to someone who doesn't believe in love.

I really do mean it, too.

I'm not the kind at all to care or think about someone else in the ways I thought of them…but there I was, walking right along the borderline.

Fascination and curiosity-those were my starting points to this horrible destination. They were his as well.

Now I can't help but wonder if that's where he happened to stay while I pushed further into this dilemma.

What if love doesn't exist and I was subconsciously molding him into what I'd read about in all the books?

If I was, then why him…of all people…

I didn't believe in the love everyone always talked about.

I believed in something real, something better, something reachable.

And then I became involved in everything. Thinking about them, worrying, even missing them…knowing they didn't think, worry or miss me at all.

It didn't stop a little bit of me from hoping maybe I'd been thought of, for just a second.

Now I'm here.

Not missing him.

Realizing I'd dreamt up someone who wasn't real.

Wasn't better than they are.

Not even remotely reachable.

He wasn't possible.
