...............My Enigma


You ask me what am I thinking when I look inside you
and you see me looking through you, as if I thought.

And how in the beginning, it was a point of issue in
that you thought, you had received not my undivided
attention and as I tried to, and I did and you understand.
So briefly, in explanation as no enigma can, with you do I.

Know too that no two enigmas are alike and as such
they are going to understand this and it helps you to
grow together, while spiraling apart to meet the end.

For the contrivance of complication is simple deceit, and
deceit, contrived is a simple matter for my generals and we
were not at war, as were so many, who thought they knew.
That two enigmas laid end to end, should never taste defeat.

    I really dont understand this one at all, but I like the name and trying to figure out what the author is talking about and how I should apply it to myself so I get something out of it and learn from this author. (Report) Reply

    'That two enigmas made into one, can never be defeated.'
    And perfectly is all tied with one string at the end of the frayed rope.

    What an amazing thing you've written. 'For the contrivance of complication is simple deceit'; and the rest too, is genius. There must be so many doors in your brain, you need never go through the same one twice! (Report) Reply

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
