I’m a writer; therefore, I lie.

Sitting all alone
I think to myself.
Wonder where you are,
where you’ll be,
how you are.
I ask myself all these questions
I should be asking you.
And now I’m writing a poem
on the back of a napkin
with a circular coffee stain.
And I’m making up answers
to my questions
because I’m far too afraid
to get them from you.

Except that the poem about a poety writing and lying and the poem itself is a lie, if that makes sense. This never happened. "I'm a writer; therefore, I lie." The voice, 'I', wrote a poem lying about whoever 'I' am talking about by making up answers to questions and I am making up this poem. I hope I explained that well.
