  • Sometimes I wonder about this. Of late, I've been wondering more and more about this. How well do I really want to know someone? The cobwebs in their head? The way they think? The murky past they carry forward with them? The excuses, the blames, the reasons. How well do you want to know your parents? Your sister ? Your partner?

    I'm struggling right now. I want to un-know certain things about someone I love very much. I want to un-know them so I can see them in a new light. So I don't color their actions with my judgements. But it's too late. For I've become so familiar with every cranny in their head, their heart and their mind, that I can predict their actions, their words and their excuses.

    Perhaps, a few secrets should remain. Perhaps, a little distance must remain.
