in you more than you.

kat [solecism]

the lines of a lifetime gather like water.
In places these streams are a torrent,
a raging flood, a sweeping away;
in places a careful shallow, a rockpool
still as a mirror. What I see in you is me:
an image of myself complete, as one,
more real than I could ever be.
What I see in you I cannot live to,
too much the perfect picture of myself.
So I will leave, and leave to you
the fragments of the me I seem,
this hem of guesses and glue. I'm not
the me I thought I was, and tell you so.
Pass round the pieces and let them go.

[Matthew Hollis]
