Be careful what you wish for,
It might come true,
I might come true.

No more a figment of your imagination,
Or a whimsical wish,
Fantasy and reality-
Don't you know how quickly
They make the switch?

Be careful what you wish for,
It might come true,
Watch what you speak,
For I might believe you.

I liked it, but I got a bit lost on the 2nd stanza. I thought you would compare fiction to reality when you started off with "No more a figment..." I thought it would be followed by you saying "than..." and comparing that figment of imagination to something real. Other than the confusion, I can see where you were going with it, and I liked your overall ideas.

by "no more a figment.." i meant that

the said person's imagination may become reality,so i would no longer remain their imagination ...
