are my mirror,
I see myself through your eyes.
You are my teacher,
I learn from you.
You are my audience,
I perform for you.
You are my love,
I yearn for your affection.
You are my world,
Without you I wouldn't really be me.
*: In my daydreams, I imagine myself living alone on an island and I ask myself, what kind of a person would I be without you? I would be a hollow shell of my current self, basically an animal guided only by instinct. You make up such a big part of my self. You are every single human being in my life: my family, my friends, my school, my community, my nation, my Earth. I learn how to talk like you, I take on your culture, and almost everything I know you have taught me. My greatest dreams are really nothing but to please you, for a second of your attention and affection. Because without you, who would I go to school for? Who would I have to impress or to prove myself to? Who would I help so I can feel better about myself? Who would I talk to?
Of course, not everything I do is for you. But honestly, those things would be meaningless without your presence. You are a way for me to guage and judge myself and my limits. I need you like an actor needs an audience, to clap for me, to boo at me,to laugh with me, and to cry with me. But it's okay, because I know I am your audience too, and you need me as much I need you.
