Did you know- a poem


Did you know..

There are parts of me that love you

There were parts that fell in love

There are parts of me forgotten

And parts that float above.

There are parts of me for others

Those parts for smores and mothers.

For every sole I conquered

There is a part, or so I trust

There are parts of me immortal

And parts that bit the dust.

There are parts of me amiss

Once deep and bright, of bliss

There ‘re some that hide beneath

A cold and bitter heath.

How I never saw them all,

Those flakes that catch my fall…

Until he came o’ wanderin’

One look that held my soul.

I’m done with all the tinquerin’,

Forgiven shards their toll.

I shattered a long time ago

Yet, to look in those eyes, I’m whole.

This poem inspired by a quote by Mhairi McFarlane, from a book I have not read, the quote is: “It’s pathetic, I knew I did from that first moment we met. It was…not love at first sight exactly, but – familiarity. Like: oh, hello, it’s you. It’s going to be you. Game over.” – You had me at hello
