What Makes Us

What Makes Us

A Poem by M Lamont

 

There is a part of me
I don’t own anymore
It’s the piece you took
That lives with you
I will never have it back
I never want it back
It grows and flourishes
Each day we are together
The piece of you
That lives with me
Will always and forever
Be a part of me
This is what makes
Us

Funny thing that some time back I wrote a poem called 'Give it Back' where I was asking for that 'piece' back so I could go on living my life. I think your interpretation is much better than mine and deserves my respect for explaining that I shouldn't be trying to grasp something back that I have offered someone anyway - even if the concept of 'us' has faded away into nothing.

I really like this work. When you fall in love, you do lose a piece of yourself, although, in truth, it is given, as the ultimate gift. Good write. Rain..

So relatable this one is. I know how it is to have someone steal a piece of you. It happens all too easily with me, or it used to anyway. Nice job.
