Noelle Mrugała-Paraan

Mirror Mirror

I don’t think I meant to love you but here we are

and I an I apart

from the I I was which does imply

an I you are you you

sometimes when I lose you or think

I’ve finally found you, but don’t

I think enough? Haven’t we found the

each other to dissolve

from postures of patience

the eachothers we were, not yet

and now again?

Haven’t we lived long enough?
