"GNOSSIENNE" in "RESTLESS: POETICALLY-SPEAKING"

It turns out
a decade and more
are still not enough
to know you as a whole.

I can still see the beauty in your soul,
hear the gentleness in your voice.
Somehow,
I can even imagine your warm embrace.

However,
you (seem to) shield the rest of you
while feeding me bread crumbs
which I hungrily grab
but none seem to complete
these missing puzzle pieces
inside your vast frame.

Nothing fits,
and I don’t like unfinished games or businesses.

I know you
but also don’t.
Which side of you is true?
For now, I’m pondering alone…

Saw you randomly on the front page and your words really resonated with me this morning. You're a gifted writer and I'm looking forward to reading more (hope that's okay!)
