projected into two dimensions
appears as a circle
no matter its orientation.
And in this circle, only the center
point is accurately portrayed,
as all other points are weighted less
The circle is not the sphere.
What is the shape of a soul?
How many dimensions does it possess?
I would share mine with you
if I could.
But all I can give
are these linguistic projections
that are not my soul
and that only vaguely hint at its existence
or occasionally resemble its shape.
I barely know you.
I want to reach out and feel you
but your skin gets in the way.
I would share my soul with you if I could.
But would you take it?
