What must be done
Must, also, be said.

It was not I who loved you
And it was not I you loved
It was another man
Who was very much like me:
He was much the same,
Except for what was inside his head.

I do not remember you, or
Rather I do, but through
A haze, as if your memory
Belonged to another, although
You still appear in my dreams.

I sleep
So I do not have to stay awake
And I stay awake
So I do not have to dream.
