Poetry Friday: Only by Marilyn Monroe

Only parts of us will ever touch parts of others -
one's own truth is just that really - one's own truth.
We can only share the part that is - within another's knowing - acceptable
so one is for most part alone.
As it is meant to be evidently in nature -
at best perhaps it could make our understanding seek another's loneliness out.
- Marilyn Monroe

From Fragments: Poems, Intimate Notes, Letters, a collection of Marilyn's writings, which I first heard about in Brain Pickings.
