You fit into me
like a hook into an eye
A fish hook
An open eye
["You Fit Into Me" an excerpt from a poem by Margaret Atwood]
Margaret Atwood has a deft hand at the multiplicity of language and its reverberating imagery. Such a simple verse, yet it says so much about the human desire to latch onto that one person who makes us feel whole. It also speaks to the darkness, in that this person who knows us most, can be the person who harms us greatest.
