the right shape

how is it that
intimacy
closeness
knowing

is perhaps the
single most
desired and
feared thing,
simultaneously?

when I listen
to my own heart
it tells me
it knows
it was made for intimacy

but that its vision
of itself
has been blurred
out of focus,
skewed

because of this
it isn't sure
it's the right shape
compatible
attractive

yet its feeling
of purpose
is strong enough
to leave a
haunting suspicion

that if I tried,
I would find
all the world
is the right
shape
