I

I am a semi-fictional character created by me.
Semi is read as sem-ahy, and not as sem-ee. 
Sometimes, I have a problem believing that I exist.
I am beyond my own belief. Post twenty-too years of existence, I am not sure if I am for real.
I don't know if you would pinch me, and I would squirm ouch! 

The person I am, is a character from an unending dream.
But this dream, they say, has ended. 
As is natural with creators, they murder the protagonists of the fiction they create, when their story ends.
But mine didn't. 
My murder was missed out on, fortunately forgotten.
Or was I cleverly excluded from the obvious?!

I exist, because I was chosen to
I exist, because you imagine I do

There are certain moments when your mind is totally blank, this is one of them.
I just read your write up and yet I'm short of any thought, yet somehow I'm inclined to say, I like it.
I can't reason out with you, but I like it.

the last line is a heart stealer. u said it all there.
about the emotions underlining the post i wont say a word, nothing will do justice to that.
the way you wrote it, the italics and the word play makes the emotions come out clear like u are sitting there spelling them out.

Do all creators kill their protagonists when the story is over? Some of the protagonists live forever don't they?
You, being the character of a dream, can't be killed when the creator, wishes. Dreams are never controlled, right?
