Poetry Friday: Only by Marilyn Monroe

June 6th, 2014 (06:00 am)

Current Mood: awake
Current Song: Leverage score music

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.

Knowing her end, these are very telling words. In way they're cautionary, aren't they... who around us may be in a similar lonely state? Thanks for posting this, Little Willow.

This is just to say that I have been here and read your words, but surgery on both thumbs last Tuesday prevents me from typing a personalized comment. Forgive me -- copy/paste is the best I can do this week! :-)
