Losing Face

face513

I don’t know that face,
even though
it seeped

into

my

skin

lives ago and
peers out at
me often
through
curtains of
dreams.

How can it be
I don’t know you
anymore?

  1. A Magritte I don’t know, and a mysterious poem —
    Two gifts of the day.
    P.S. It doesn’t actually matter so much that you don’t know her — because she knows you.

    1. Finding new Magritte images is always fun!

      Interesting interpretation on the poem…would it surprise you to know the she was actually he? DELIGHTED it could be read both ways, actually!!
