a mysterious narrative / by Ellen Sorensen

a mysterious narrative 

spans years in my story

a mind so elaborate, so complex


every day i work to solve, to understand 

but things unfold in their own time 

always leaving me wanting more 


how can one mind be such an enigma?

how can two so contrary

make the best pairing? 


logical rationale eludes me 

so i find peace in the truth 

that not everything needs an explanation 


in the midst of the mystery 

my soul finds contentment 

he and i have escaped reason


and the more days that come and go

the less often 

i can fall asleep alone
