To Know Me Not is to Love Me Not





What do you mean when you say you love me?
What do you see, looking at me?

The me that I see is the me within me
But you are not free to look on that me.

So the me that you see is not the real me
Just the me that you think of when thinking of me.

And that cannot be the me inside me
That looks back at you so lovingly.

    When I started to read this, I was a bit, “yeah, so what?” but you have encapsulated so much within so few lines I am in awe. And tremendous control of words.

      Thanks, I’m glad you liked it. And you’ve picked another lovely image – don’t know how you find them! And thanks for capitalizing the title. I actually uploaded it capitalized, then changed it to lowercase, for some reason, but with hindsight I think it’s better now you’ve corrected it back.

Say something!
