“..Do you know me?
Then who am I?
Do you know me better than I do myself?

~
Are you the only one
before whose eyes
nothing is hidden 
of my nakedness 
Can you endure
Like no other
That I do not shine 
am not warm
That I’m not beautiful, 
not much
That no fountain
springs from my depths
That I have only this face
No other
Have I been seen by you
without shame
taken
by
no
one
less 
Wouldn’t that be too much truth
Wouldn’t that be too good to be true.”
