Rhetorical maybe


I sometimes wonder if the things you loved about me at first are still apparent to you. Or whether they amount to a most fortunate misconception we shed like a wrapper off a bar of chocolate after purchase. Or, worse, if they fell into place like a single puzzle piece, its outline fading into the background of a mundane landscape.

Not as often, mind you.

I thought it was 'the things you first loved about meat': but only for a second; anyway who would buy a bar of chocolate with no wrapper, however high the percentage/
Alternatively, is there anything more galling and useless than a jigsaw with one piece missing?

Those things are always apparent, even if they grow transparent with time.Our eyesight is keener than we fear it is.
