Seen As One

It was many years
before comfort accompanied
the use of "I."

I thought it was
a self-serving
personal rendering
of ego,
yet the subservient
avoidance ritual
created its own insensitivities:
third party, aloof
observations of heart,
seen only
through winter brain.

The "I"
has been freed 
with its own
envisioning companionship.
