whole | day twenty-eight

two halves make a whole

or four quarters

five fifths

six sixths

seven sevenths

eight eighths

(i could keep going

but i think you get the point)

that we are made of a million pieces

a million little shards

that make us whole

coloring our days

name, age, birthday

how many bones you’ve broken

your favorite color

do you sleep on your side?

do you prefer sunshine or rain?

a million little things

make you who you are

a million little secrets

the way your nose wrinkles when you think

your half-asleep smile

a million bits of you

and it might take

my whole life long

but i want to learn

every

single

one.
