There’s always more
to the story than
leaves the lips
to find right words.

We are but humans
love-blinded by be-
-ing, instinct and
desire,
with cell-infused memories
we almost forget to remember
from sunrise to dusk.

Consciousness can
only take us as far as
we are ready
to see what’s true,
who’s calling.

Even the fingerprints of mind,
time, interpretative
speculation can’t convey
the depth of worlds we know
within…

or rather, maybe
worlds within
that know {us} better
than we do.
