What has greater value,
being understood,
or feeling as though
I am understood?
Whether I am or not,
In actuality.
Do I fear being understood?
Insecure in the vulnerability that
your understanding of me
is too close to
my misunderstanding
of myself.
For none have spent
more time
trying to figure me out,
than I.
And after all this time,
I sometimes feel
no closer
than when I began.
