Segmented.

Neither here

Nor there

All in one

None at all.

Hidden beneath

Behind. Next to

You

Speechless.

Because words

will not

Suffice

This moment

In time.

All this life

That lies behind

And beyond

You and I.

Segmented

I have become

To accommodate

All I have seen

And done

And been

Contained.

As if bursting

At the seams.

The stiches pulling

Tighter

Than intended

By a careful

Seamstress.

Hold back

Contain

Make sense

Of all this.

As if I could

As if it could be done

Segmented

Patchwork

At best

Incomplete and whole.
