I wanna crack you open
like a secret code.
watch your thoughts
spill out of you,
enlightening me
with your mind and knowledge.
you're like a complex puzzle
with all the pieces in plain view,
but the faces change
just to confuse
everyone else.
you want people to know.
at the same time,
you're terrified
of being figured out
completely.
I'm keeping track
of all the bits and pieces,
everything you offer
and all of your hints.
I hope one day,
I'll figure you out
all the way.
