Fragments

the idea of you

      power
      vulnerability

            sweet talking
            brain baring
            bittersweet

                      second chances.
                      no thirds.
                      though life may plot otherwise

                              pictures. puzzle pieces.
                              songs that torture

                                     haze. identity.
                                     silver linings
                                     are hard work.

ours is a relationship built on words
words written
           unwritten, unspoken

                           i miss you.
                           miss, as in wish you were here
                           miss, as in missing from me

                                        you break, i break
                                        silence
                                        loud
                                        the sound of a heart breaking

                                        abandoned
                                        dispensable

tell all your secrets to someone
who'll forget them tomorrow

          one, far away from someone
          two, far away from their thoughts
          three, an afterthought

                    but you are not one half of a whole
                    you are one
                                 "one person in one head"
                                                    you are whole.

wow.
this is so beautiful.
almost Sufi in its desire to merge and be one.
and the inherent pathos (or what read of it) makes it heartbreakingly beautiful

thanks you guys! It's really quite random, not really a poem? (hence 'fragments')
