You don’t know me~by Britta Hoffmann



You don’t know me

You don’t know me
you just read my poetry
so how can you say it is my fate
that you are my soulmate

how can you talk about love
when you hardly have any idea
what it really is you’re thinking of
so let me make this very clear

what I write is not about you
neither about what you say nor what you do
just this one time I need to clarify
and this is the only reason why

if you only read what I write
you still have no idea who I am inside
about how I am you have your own sight
and with the person I really am this might collide

what you feel is only imagination
and I am for sure not your destination
so I kindly have to deny
and if this doesn’t work, I don’t only sigh

I’ll fight you back if I have to
though it’s nothing I really want to do
but be sure – I’ll see it through
your love just can’t be true
because I don’t even know you
