You think you know me

Now you have seen me intimately

That I have revealed  

The essentialness of my being

By showing you my naked self

You’ve drawn lines around my body

And painted my insides

You’ve created a picture portrait

A beautiful lifelike representation 

Of everything you see

And then assigned me your name

But the truth remains concealed 

You will never really know 

Anything about me

  1. What a fascinating write ~~~ thanks for the 'meaning' ... totally new word for me today.

    1. I always try to learn one new thing every day. They're usually unexpected and fun.
