I see that you have a difficult time
wrapping the fact around your mind
that I am not a formula
a simple equation, easy to solve

and I think you struggle with trying
to believe
that you cannot pull me from your sleeve
whenever you are in need of me

I am fully yours or not yours
at
all.

The first thought that came to mind when I finished was "Wow." And that's honestly the best way for me to describe this. Again, I can see why the staff considers this exceptional. A truly wonderful piece of work.
