They Say They Know

They say they know me
Sometimes even better than me
Gossiping like ducks 
Telling stories without facts

They say they know me
All my weaknesses and strengths
Into my soul and my mind
My kindred spirit you would presume

They say they know me
They sound closer to me than my own skin
Pushing out lies with reckless abandon 
These enemies without faces

They say they know me
Perhaps to satisfy a craving, a desire
A need to share part of my story and glory
They say it is part of the price for fame

They say they know me
Yet tell untrue stories of me in my absence
What cowardice! What shame!
I understand; I forgive!
