Something Foolish

i am only what you make me out to be 
you never actually asked 
it is these heady ideas 
too which you clasp 
it is these giddy notions 
of which you will not part 
i am not a real person 
just a series of pieces 
barely finishing your jigsaw 
i am only what you make me out to be 
despite my often lofty ideals 
it is foolish of me to want to be me 
it is not what you want 
it does not fill your vast empty space 
i cannot stand around forever 
looks like closeness will have to wait.
