that look, i will never forget | words by goldfish_
That look, i will never forget. Was it the trace of time and emotion already?
The embodiment of inhuman or the most human power?
On her face, the beautiful unspoilt face of a three-year old?
On her face, what did i discover?
Will i ever find her in the impossible labyrinth of human personality,
in the backwaters of indescribable, concealed pain,
never realised, never spoken of?
Will i ever be able to find her in that heap of blurry photographs
of a childhood more beautiful
a heart more open
than i ever
dared to imagine.
