I hear you’re an open book

But I still can’t read you.

Indiscernible.

Indecipherable.

Words gushing past, frenzied.

Maybe the pages are turning too fast

Maybe I’ve missed too many chapters

Maybe all of you is in a foreign language

Maybe parts of you are in a hundred different languages

Every time I learn one, I’m confused again.

Every time I understand you, I’m confused again.

But then we blend together rapidly,

Our words morph.

Our stories morph.

This chapter speaks my language –

The last chapter speaks my language.


I am your last chapter.
