If only we knew each other better

16 Oct

If only we knew each other better

I wouldn’t have to wear this annoying mask

and just speak my mind without fear

of retribution or just a casual rejection

If only we knew each other better

we could embrace each other with abandon

and know that no matter what the revelation

we would never abandon the other

But do any two people ever know each other

that well?

that perfectly?

so that nothing can ever cause a falling out?

There is always more to know

and the suspicion of something held back

of a mask still worn

never really goes away

You think you know each other really well

then one day you may find you know each other

hardly at all

Knowing is an endless drop into a

bottomless well

full of surprises

here ye be dragons

so I will end this poem with this thought

Knowledge is not what makes for love

Just the moment of being together

With no instructions for use required
